I made the pillows (below) years ago, but they are some of my favorite. Sure wish I could find a stripe as wonderful as this fabric again. Both pillows were made from the same fabric, but I placed the long side of the triangle on different stripes for each pillow. Because each pillow block is symmetric, you can tell that I cut 1/4 square triangles on the same stripe of the fabric. You can get two blocks using the fabric-saving method by cutting the 4 lower triangles on one stripe and do the same with the 4 upper triangles. Does that wording make sense? If not, let me know and I'll blog with pictures and another description.
