Quilt As You Go Pillow with Applique
You guys know by now that I love using up my scraps and I had this idea to make a Quilt As You Go (QAYG) pillow in my head for a while.
This one measures 16"x16" and is hand appliquéd and hand quilted. I absolutely love the process of hand sewing, so calming and therapeutic!
I usually finish my pillows with an 'envelope' style back, but didn't like the way that if your envelope flaps were to small, they would poke out and you could see the pillow inside. Otherwise, if the envelope flaps were too long, it made it difficult to put the pillow inside. There was a very fine 'happy medium' that depended heavily on how bulky the pillow was.
For something different and for more of a professional finish, I've added a zipper in a pop of color! Next time, I think I'll make the zippers more visible so you can really see the color.
I Love Link-ups!
