Geometric Bird Pillow

A "Tweet" Pillow for Summer

Remember this sweet Geometric Bird block that I made in June?  ( posted here )

Geometric Bird pattern  by Kristy @ Quiet Play
(paper pieced)  

What happens when you add some  1 1/2 " sash borders ,  a zipper ( for the  backing)  and a plump little 16 " square pillow insert?

Summer Cuteness!!

Geometric Bird pillow    by  Susie's Sunroom

Back of pillow   ~  using the Covered zipper tutorial  by Amy Made That!
This zipper opening on the pillow back is super easy to make,
 when you follow Amy's tutorial!!   { here }  I used the  scraps from the sash borders to make the cover over the zipper.

(  I love buying my zippers at  Etsy Zip It !  (I am not compensated by Zip It!  I just love her selection and the excellent  customer service! )

Guess what?! The USA  pillow form company,  Pillow Cubes,  has given me a COUPON  code for a 10% discount,  for any Susie's Sunroom readers!!

The code is ~      susiepillow

Use coupon code  susiepillow for 10% off your order

If you are like me, and make LOTS of pillows, then this is an awesome deal!! 
I can  buy them by the box, at a really good price!  Then I can stuff them into my closets  store them away, and I'll  have a pillow insert ready for whenever the " pillow making whimsy "  hits me ... even  at 9 pm at night !!

For example, as of today:     The cost per  pillow is under $5  ---- for a  box of 14  -  16 inch square pillow inserts (made in the USA) .  That includes shipping, and using the  "susiepillow" coupon code!    (

That's a "tweet deal" using the coupon code " susiepillow"  at

I'm off to my sewing room!
