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.
This quilt was made from Quilt Block of the Month from Joann’s. I buy them on clearance and if I have enough of them will make them into a quilt. With this one I ended up with two odd blocks so made those into pillows. These blocks came with all pieces cut to size and instructions for putting them together.
My kids like to do latch hook kits. I get them started and they finish the design. Then I find coordinating fabric for the back and sew the back on with right sides together leaving about 3″ so it can be turned right side out. Next we fill with Polyester filling and whip stitch the opening closed by hand.
