The pattern pieces are squashed half hexagons.
I sewed them into rows to end up with pairs of like colored pieces sewn the "right" way (into squashed hexagons) alternating with pieces sewn "backwards" (the hour glass shapes).
I bought the ENORMOUS pillow form at Ikea. It's a great pillow and it only cost (I think) six dollars. I'd call that a steal, as long as you have a need for something so huge in your life. It would make a great floor pillow.
