The Letter "K" Pillow

After playing around a bit more with the Slice and Insert quilting method, I thought the letter "K" might work for it too.

My three year old chose purple sparkly fabric for the "K".  After I cut out 3" strips and arranged them into a K shape, I realized that piecing together made more sense.  She then chose the Minnie Mouse print for the background.

I started with the top diagonal, then the bottom and added to both sides.  Then I added the bottom diagonal to the top and finally added the straight piece.  I added borders, then batting and quilted through the top and batting.

I added batting to the back piece too to give the pillow a better form before stuffing.  It is about 13" square.
