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.


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”?!
