Mine isn't quite as big, but at 26" it's no slouch! I used my "Mama Said Sew" charm pack to make a black and red chevron pattern. I quilted with grey thread outlining the zig zag seams.
For the back I used the rest of the squares from the pack and some red solid. I wanted to try the Dogwood quilting pattern from Oh Fransson that's been all the rage lately. While not completely unsuccessful the results don't really bear taking pictures.
I used a zipper closure-- my first try at that. And over all I'm really happy with how my giant floor pillow turned out!
I actually finished the animal quilt last weekend but didn't get pictures until today. I was hoping for sunny, warm day, which never came. The quilting is simple straight lines. I didn't want to do dense quilting because I wanted it to keep its softness. I backed it with a really lightweight denim and it's all ready for snuggles.
