X factor pillow swap - Field Trip

The fabulous pillows in the latest round of the X-factor pillow swap have all been voted on so I am now able to reveal the one I entered...
The theme for round 5 was "circles" so I used my Matildas Own drunkards path templates to make 4"  blocks from a combination of Anna Maria Horner's Field Study fabric and some coordinating solids.
I used my hera marker to mark out grid lines approximately one inch apart for the quilting on this pillow and inserted a zipper for the back of the pillow for the first time.
And in keeping with the "Biology" theme, for the back I used the "Frogs Eggs" in multi print from the Sarah Fielke "On the Pond" range .
So this pillow will be posted off to its new home this week. The next theme for the X-factor swap is "hexagons" and all of the details can be found here
