This is a triangle quilt using scraps that I have saved from bindings and scraps. It was so satisfying to use them. I started with an equilateral triangle and then added the scraps to two sides of the triangle.

The fabrics came from this pile of polyester fabrics that have been stored since the time Mom worked at Danneman's when we lived in Delaware from 1970 to 1974. Danneman's was a fabric store in the Blue Hen Mall. Mom told me the story of how she decided to go to work when the kids (me) started high school and she had the free time. She had taken business classes after high school and Dannemans was the first store that she went to apply for a job. I asked if she got an employee discount because I noticed some fabrics had an extra discount taken off. She said that there was no such thing as employee discounts and she usually bought fabrics when the remnants were on sale.
This is a bag the fabric was stored in. At first I was just going to throw all the polyester fabric away. But since making these pillows, I am going to put it back in the closet and see if there are other projects that I can use these.

These are some of the quilts that caught my eye at the Hawaii Quilt Guild 2017 show. It is free May 4-14. There is still a chance to view the show tomorrow Sunday 1-5 at the Honolulu Museum of Art School. Although the quilt show was small, there were some beautiful shibori, sashiko and hawiian hand quilted applique pieces.
