I decided to make a pillow cover for this giant pillow that sits on my couch. I had several fat quarters left over from my first quilt and thought it would be great if they matched.
I pinned a Moda Bakeshop pillow cover tutorial, about two years ago, and knew it would be perfect. It is a Cathedral Window tutorial, but with the "petals" filled in too.
I really had no idea how much fabric it would take. Just for one of the little white squares it is 10inx10in. That is a bunch. Especially since when you fold/iron it all down it ends up being a 4in square. But it wasn't so difficult as it was time consuming.
I posted my progress on instagram:
|All 16 squares Sewn together|
|first attempts...starting to look like something|
|Pillow top completed...just needed the envelope backing|
The messurments for the envelope back of the pillow cover were a bit off. I think I will have to find a better tutorial. I actually may have one pinned. Ooops.
|Please, forgive the wrinkled slip-cover|
The cover is a little big, but I still love it. Sometimes I look at it and I can't believe that I did that. Though, I may never do this particular project again...Lol. ;)
I am always wanting to learn new things, when it comes to sewing. I have a Quilting TO DO List a mile long. And I am so happy that I get to mark one of my projects off the list.
Have you marked anything off your list lately?
