Our quilt guild is hosting a quilt show in August and each of us are expected to make a wall hanging, less than 20″ in height as a raffle item. Me, being the smart aleck of the group, asked if I could make my entry a pillow instead.
I took an extra block from the scrap bag and put on a few borders before measuring the sides. A trip to Goodwill resulted in a matching men’s shirt and a pillow for the form for a few bucks. I cut the men’s shirt to match the top and sewed them together around all four sides. I clipped the corners and flipped it right side out before putting the pillow form inside and rebuttoning the back. I like this technique of making pillows as I don’t like sewing zippers or flaps and it has the added benefit of recycling.
