WIP Wednesday

I am hoping to have a "Handmade" Christmas this year - not sure how I am going to go with that though as I seem to have left everything a bit late ! My family has always been very appreciative of the things I make for them so I decided to make a pillow for my brother.

I am using a pattern by Krista @ Spotted Stones from the 101 Patchwork Projects and Quilts book published last year. I am basically following her measurements but am doing a quilt as you go (QAYG) method for the strips so they are attached to the batting for the pillow front.
My brother is a triathlete and does a lot of cycling so I thought this would be a great design for him!
