Pillows made from Quilt Blocks

 

These pillows were made from a pattern out of a Quilt Magazine.  But sometimes I make pillows out of extra quilt blocks from a quilt.  I used to buy Quilt Blocks of the Month from Joann’s when they went on clearance , but they don’t sell them anymore at my Joann’s. I like to sandwich them so that you can put a pillow form in and easily remove to wash the cover.  I measure the front block and cut two pieces of the back fabric the same size.  Then I fold the back pieces to about 1/3 the size so there is an overlap.  I sew the front to the back two pieces that are overlapped right sides together.  Then when you turn inside out you have a finished cover and can easily put in a boughten pillow form.  If the quilt block turns out to be an odd size you can always add borders to make it a standard size for a pillow form.
