candy corn inspired pillow

I had a brilliant idea (or so I thought it was).  I was going to make a candy corn pillow.  After two tries it just wasn't pretty and not what I had envisioned BUT this fun pillow came to me instead.  So instead of an actually candy corn pillow I now have a pretty pillow inspired by candy corns...I love it so much more.
Want to make one?
Cut out 4 4"x4" squares from orange and yellow fabric.  I then Cut out 8 4"x4" squares from white.  Arrange in the pattern you want.
Start with your first row and pin your first two fabric right sides together and sew.  Add the next piece of fabric and continue until you have all 4 pieces sewn together.
It should look like this when your done.  Continue with each row.
Now you're going to pin your first and second row right sides together and sew. 
Continue until you have all four rows sewn together.  It should look like this.
For the back:
Cut out 1 15"x4" pieces from your yellow and orange fabric.  Pin the long sides right sides together and sew.
Cut your white fabric 15"x7.5".  Pin to your yellow and orange fabric piece with right sides together and sew.
You now have your front and back pieces done.
Pin them right sides together and sew around.  I curved the corners and make sure you leave an opening to pull through.
Clip the corners if you curved them and pull it through.  Stuff it and sew the opening closed with a needle and thread.
Now enjoy a little bit of fall with your candy corn "inspired" pillow.  My little one loves it and wouldn't let go when I wanted to take a picture.
The front
the back (may be my favorite)
and the best part is its even soft.
