QAYG Pillow Cover
Hope ya'll are having a great week! I am still loving the Craftsy class with Maureen Cracknell - Quick Quilt As You Go. So this week I have a pillow cover to share - albeit with indoor photos.
In the class Maureen teaches how to make a pillow cover for a rectangular pillow, but I had a square pillow form hanging around in the closet so I opted to make a square version.
Here is the top after it was pieced/quilted. It's meant to be scrappy and mismatched and uneven. But if you are really into everything matching up perfectly that would be easy to do, too.
Here is the top from the back. You can see the quilting lines in the batting. The seams are pressed open and I was amazed at how you cannot feel these seam allowances from the front at all. No issue with the bulk from the seams.
And below is the back of the finished pillow. It is also quilted though the batting. I opted for some FMQ.
I modified Maureen's methods for binding to suit me but overall I recommend this class. I just find it so inspiring.
So what are you working on this week? Have you tried QAYG?
Have a creative week!
