Pillow cover of blue and multi-coloured fabrics

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.

Here’s the first one using only the off cuts from the Hour Glass block.

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.

Happy Quilting!
