a triangle throw pillow

My fourth sewing project has been finished!  This triangle throw pillow is one of the projects included in the Get Quilty eCourse from Elise.  I am seriously on her blog almost everyday…you should check it out  🙂  After the successful foldover clutch that I made for my sister in law and then a quilted tote bag that I adapted from those same instructions, I decided to try another one of the projects and drove into the triangle throw pillow.  I decided to make it winter themed and chose light blue and dark blue.  Though Elise used flannel, I misread the instructions (literally a million times) and bought felt.  I really like the end product though.  The felt is quite cozy and soft to snug up to 🙂

The one downside of the felt is that it wasn’t iron-able during the sewing process….yes I learned this the hard way though nothing was ruined 🙂  The resulting bumpiness of the patchwork triangles made me nervous up until the moment when I put the pillow inside.  You can’t even tell that the patchwork was never ironed!  The pillow looks so nice!  I think the pups even like it 🙂

I think a quilt is up next on the sewing agenda  🙂  Any helpful tips or suggestions?
