As I was browsing Flickr for ideas for the back, I saw this and decided to use the same design. I had the perfect amount of fabric left over for the little strips and thought the design lent itself well for what I was going for, which was a simple yet formal appearance to mimic the formal, sophisticated look of the front.
Looking at the back this closely tells me I need a 1/4" guide to help me get straight seams when they're this narrow.
This was a fun project to work on. I'm planning on making a companion pillow with the same color scheme, but it will have to wait until after the holidays.
It looks wonderful :)
I'm inspired! Have to try this before Christmas! Thank you.
I love this! I know I commented the last time you posted a sample of this. So inspiring! I didn't think I even liked cathedral windows until I saw your take on it. LOVE it!

What a beautiful pillow! Love your colors. The ivory looks perfect!
Brooke, this pillow is gorgeous.
SO pretty! Love the colors and solids!
I love it... the colors and the design, it's always one of my favorites, very classic, and completely unfathomable for me, I crochet, enough said ;-)
It's so pretty. I love it. Again, I will say.....You are so talented!
Very modern and clean cut:) Love it!
I love how your pillow turned out. It looks so nice!
I am totally impressed with how perfect the windows came out!
popping over from Amylou's sew and tell.
Love your pillow. Great color combo and love your bit of interest on the back side of the pillow.
This particular quilt block is my fave, so I had to stop by and take a looksee.
One day I must tackle this pattern. One day. :-)
This is beautiful!
I love it! It's awesome! :) Great colors - everything! :)
Just gorgeous!! I especially love the stripe down the back :)
This is lovely! I'm inspired to give Cathedral window a try. Happy Fabric Tuesday!
Very nice. I will be trying Cathedral Windows in the coming year for sure. I really like how you did the back of the pillow too.
It turned out fabulous!
wow! (I so need to tackle these!). :)
Brooke, I love the cathedral look on things. I have done samples of it but I have never used it on any thing. Maybe some day I'll try if I live long enough to finish some of my things I have to or are partly
done. Grandma Roberts
Brooke, it turned out awesome! I want to try!
