Strips of Stripes Pillow

As promised here is my most recent striped creation:
The finished pillow measures about 20" x 20", so it's very generously sized.
I free motion machine quilted it on with diagonal lines spaced about 1/4" apart. It's definitely a weekend project and easy on the fabric stash as it only used 4 fat quarters and the little bits of orange fabric for the centers. In fact, I used the remains of that orange fat quarter o craft the zippered backing.
This version was made out of my a stitch in color stripes, but I'm curious to see what it would look like in some shirting stripes or Kaffe Fassett shot cotton stripes. And, there's always the possibility of expanding it into a full size quilt!
