Quilted Pillow

When I finished quilting and binding this quilt for my customer there was quite a bit of backing fabric left.  I suggested she might like a pillow cover for it.  Yes, yes please was the answer.  I forgot to take a picture of the finished pillow but here's the design I quilted on the front. The design is Spring Sunrise Block 4 by My Creative Stitches.  

And here's the finished design.

I used one of the tutorials for envelope pillow covers on the Internet.  Sorry, I can't find the one I used.  It gave recommendations on sizes to cut the cover based on the pillow form chosen.  I ended up cutting this one down slightly smaller than the 16" pillow I was using.  Luckily it worked very well and I passed a nice plump pillow to my customer.  And, no, I didn't remember to take a picture.  Sigh.  I've been missing taking pics of finished projects a lot recently.  Note to self -- remember to take a photo of the 25 patch quilt now that it is done! 

I hope you have a great weekend.  I'm going to link up with Needle and Thread Thursday and Can I Get a Whoop, Whoop?  I hope you take some time to see what people are working on these days. 

Happy Quilting All! Bonnie 


  1. It’s beautiful. Did you bind it with the blue fabric, too! Your quilting is gorgeous.

  2. The stitching is gorgeous! I bet you have one very happy customer.

  3. What a pretty quilting design! It looks lovely on that nice blue fabric :)

  4. A great trick of pillow making is to allows make your pillow case an inch smaller than your form. That way it makes a nice plump pillow. If the form is 20", make the finished case 19". Also, angle the corners about 1/2" in and taper to the edge. That way you won't get the dog ears from floppy corners. Here's one I made with this method.

    1. Always not allow! LOL and I forgot to say how gorgeous is that pillow!!!!

  5. It looks fantastic, and I know your client loved it.
