i needed a quick gift. we all know the best ones are homemade. i decided to make a pillow using an tester/orphan block. i keep a box full of test blocks and orphan blocks. they are perfect for quickie gift ideas. when i make a quilt from the same block, i make a couple extra *shrug* i dunno why. i could pretend that i do it on purpose, but i don't.
this pillow has a overhang in the back that allows the form to be taken out. that way you can wash the pillow cover.
all measurements are finished measurements- no seam allowances. my seam allowance in this entire project was 1/4 inch (click on the picture will take you to the bigger version. click 'back' on your bowser to come back here)
this took me (not having to make the block) about 3 hours. i keep pillow forms in the house. my favorite sizes are 14 inch, 16 inch, and 18 inch. i buy 20 inch as i need them. i get them at JoAnn's with my coupon, or when they have a sale.
so make a pillow and send me a picture...i wanna see what you do with it...
