Over the Rainbow

My Walk in the Park quilt definitely has a yellow brick road vibe so when I started playing with the leftover scraps for a pillow my mind immediately jumped somewhere over the rainbow:-)

I was determined to use up every last scrap of this layer cake and the rectangles were perfectly sized to try out my new Mini 60° Triangle ruler from the Quiltcon 2016 Triangle Quilt Challenge.

I wanted to keep it simple so for the quilting I just did a stitch in the ditch along the white stripes.

If you can believe it I didn't have a matching zipper big enough for the cover so I went with an overlapping edge on the back.  Please pretend not to notice that I sewed the top panel on upside down:-)

Now if I just had a matching mini quilt my foyer would be complete.
