I used freezer paper for my templates and hand quilting thread. The fabric is Legacy Studio from JoAnns. I got 1/6th yard of each, and ended up accidentally cutting too many rectangles for the diamonds. I think I'll do some kind of mini quilt with the extra.
The hand-stitching was very easy and actually fun. :) I forgot to keep taking pictures once I started assembling. I happened to have some polyfill in my big tub, and used it right up to stuff.
And . . . here it is! I used coconut buttons and put one on each side in case I get bored and want to switch it up.
