A Simple Pillow

March is my month to be queen in the Modern Stitching Bee. I have been pondering what block I want my bee mates to make for me but have been stumped so instead I made a pillow.
I am loving this color combination. So maybe I will ask for it in the bee. The mustard, grey and white is just so clean and modern looking to me.
The pillow is made with just 5 random pieces of fabric. I love each fabric separately, but together they just sing!
It is quilted in a 1" grid, but on the horizontal piece across the middle I quilted it with horizontal lines about 1/4" apart, in addition to the vertical lines.
The pillow measures about 17" square and fits an 18" pillow form.
For the envelope style back I used the grey Squared Elements print, the same as the upper right corner.

I'm linking this up with Amy's Pillow Collective

This is a beauty. I'm love mustard yellow. It's looks awesome with the gray and white. A quilt in this would be rad.
