Pillow Talk

I wanted to show everyone how I make my pillows. These are two pillows that I made for my sister and my niece who is adopted. The quote on the pillows is very important to her!

The photos give step by step instructions for putting the pillows together. I machine embroidered the quote and trees on 12″ square backgrounds and then added 3″ borders. I made my own pillow inserts for these 18″ pillows. I hope these photos provide sufficient details. Send me a comment of contact me if you have any questions!

I also have made pillows that have a quilted front.  I just layer the front over a piece of batting and backing, then I free motion quilt the layers together.  The back of these pillows is the same as shown here with the fusible interfacing.  My Cardinal Pillow is my favorite!
