The Color Wheel Pillow (take 2)

I'd like to formally introduce you to the Color Wheel Pillow

This bad-boy was made by taking 4 10" squares, cutting each square into 3 slices, and piecing together like a spider web quilt block, with each section the same width. 

In the inside of the wheel, I quilted 1/8" around each seam.  On the background (Kona Charcoal), I did a meandering stitch. 

The backing is Robert Kaufman Metro Circles (white on pewter).  For the closure, I put in 5 button holes with large yellow & green buttons. 

Here are the two of them together.  I made the wheel on the 2nd one a bit smaller- it was hard to tell that it was a wheel on the first pillow.  I also made the outer & middle strips thinner, and the inner larger, it made them seem more proportionate.

I love it & I hope you do to!
