Hey Everyone, welcome back to Free Form/Motion Friday.
I finished my quilt challenge project for QUILTsocial this week and had some fabric leftover – not enough to make a quilt out of but enough to do something with it. The big reveal of the two quilts for the challenge will be at the beginning of April on Quiltsocial.
I decided to make 3 pillow covers to go with the quilt each measuring approximately 18 inches square.
I had the off cuts from the Hour Glass block used them to make two of the pillow covers.
Pillow Cover #1
Here’s the first one using only the off cuts from the Hour Glass block.
Pillow Cover #2
The second one I only had 12 of the off cut blocks left so had to put a border around it to get the same size pillow cover. The blue fabric was pretty much all gone with this piece.
Pillow Cover #3
The third one I just did 5 inch squares as I hardly had any blue fabric left to work with and the whole quilt is really based on 5 inch squares – quite appropriate to go with the quilt.
Now this is what I have left and I still need to make a backing for one of the pillow covers and possibly a bit more binding. I have the other 2 backings under control with the flannel that was left. I even used up the rest of the batting.
I’ve done pretty good I would say.
Now I had best get these quilted and finished as they need to be delivered tomorrow along with the quilt.
