Wandering through the fabric aisles, wistfully looking at spring fabrics, I happened upon two bright prints that quickly became mine! I was craving a fast, easy project and decided to make two pillow covers, quilted of course!
I outlined the paisleys with my machine. It was good practice for curves!
After quilting, I wanted a nice straight edge around the pillow. I used a furniture floor guide as a seam marker. The bottom is sticky and stays in place and it is just the right thickness to manage the layers of fabric easily.
Here is the finished pillow, LUV!
Next, I moved on to my modern feathers fabric. I drew a grid using light pencil lines spaced 2 inches apart and worked my way around the entire pillow in no time!
Here’s the finished pillow.
I made envelope backs for the pillows. Can we say “fast and easy”?!

Thank you! Bright colors for spring!
Nice pillows! And– good news– my machine will be ready next Tuesday — hurrah!
Hooray! Your machine didn’t take as long as you thought!
Love the pillows and the colors! I got a kick out of the post title – ha! 🙂
Thanks! I was trying to be witty!
Beautiful pillows! What a great idea 🙂
Thanks, very easy and good machine quilting practice!
I would never have thought to use a felt bumper that way! A good tip!👌
Thanks, it is just sticky enough to stay in place but is easily removed.
