Pillow Talk!

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.

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!

I made envelope backs for the pillows.  Can we say “fast and easy”?!
