Artful Pillows: Summer

I found this fabric at Value Village. It is shear with the blue cotton underneath. I loved the Goddesses and thought the colours contrasted well with the other patterned pillow.
The patterned emblem was embroidered from an iron on transfer. I have a whole box full of retro iron on sheets.
This pattern's colours reminded me of summer sunsets and echoed the emblem on the "summer" pillow.

Wow, it took more than 2 months to get these puppies together. I was happy to get them done before the Autumn equinox. Summer is really such an active time that sewing indoors is not top priority. Regardless the Summer edition is done and I'm happy with the result. I'm hanging on to the last days of warm weather with all my might. I love fall, but until the equinox I'll stick with the summer colours and decor, just for a last dance with flowers, sunshine and flip flops.
