Bright and Bubbly Pillow

Happy appliquéd circles arranged in a flower shape fill a bright pillow. The ragged edges of the appliqués add to the project’s breezy charm while orange piping frames the aqua background and echoes the center circle. Fabrics are from the Honey Honey collection by Kate Spain for Moda Fabrics.
