Pillows

January 10, 2013

Hey all,

This post will be pretty short because the craft I completed was super easy.  I purchased 6 fat quarters recently from a newer quilt shop in town and knew instantly I wanted to make pillows for our master bedroom out of them.  I had some old throw and floor pillows laying around that needed to be updated so I decided to work with them as my pillow forms.  I ended up not trimming any of my fat quarters, faced them right sides together and stitched three of the four sides, leaving a big enough hole to stuff the pillow form into.  Once the pillow was in the case, I hand stitched the fourth side and voila, I had some new pillows!  Seriously, this was an easy craft that really made a big impact on the bed!  I do hope to make some more complicated pillows soon, but need another foot for my sewing machine so I can add in piping!
