After the paper piecing disaster of 2010, I re-cooped and started from scratch on these pillows. I bought new fabrics and worked with my husband developing patterns so that I could avoid any paper piecing assembly. I am so happy to report that the pillows turned out REALLY nicely, if I do say so myself. I love them and was very proud to gift them to my mother for Christmas. They match her bedroom perfectly and I know she appreciates the gorgeous batik fabrics.
They are 20-inch pillows and there is a scant black border around the blocks on the front. They are slip-cover, removable pillow covers with free-motioned squiggly quilting.
I wish I could offer a tutorial on these, but hell if I know how it all ended up coming together and I can guarantee you there are probably dozens of ways to assemble these that would be easier than what I ended up doing. However, I can toss some links for other online tutorials for Storm and Sea blocks.
