A friend of mine makes beautiful pillows.
After making my first travel pillow, I tried my hand at making a pillow.
My plan was to use these quick sew projects as a means for trying new
quilting skills. I purchased a great book at Las Colchas.
Compiled by Heather Bostic
The book includes a very helpful Pillow Construction Techniques section.
There are 25 quick sew projects with user friendly instructions.
Las Colchas made kits for each one of the projects in the book.
I chose to make The Metro, a 20″x 20″ pillow.
The kit had all of the colors that my brother favors, so I thought it would be a perfect fit.
After piecing the top, I decided to hand quilt my own designs.
