A big quilt needs a matching pillow!

I'll admit that I have previously been afraid of making pillows, shams, the envelope closure etc.  I have no idea why. Honestly, it is the easiest thing I've ever done and when you stuff a big old pillow in it, it is INSTANT gratification!

So, of course the 'biggest quilt I've ever made', needed a matching pillow case right?  Yes.

I used a pink chevron print for the back, and of course the adorable Lets Pretend panel for the main center of the front.  With matching squares lining it.

I know I've said it a bajillion times, but those marionettes get me EVERY TIME. ♥  SO stinkin cute.

She's all wrapped up and on her way to Oregon!  Safe travels my big lovely quilt!!  ♥

I used this tutorial for the envelope closure, and based my pillow off of Sarah Jane's tutorial here. 
If you haven't made a pillow but have been dying to, this tutorial is the one you need. :)


  1. Really a lovely set. Great job stepping outside your comfort zone and learning new things. --Sarah thriftstorecrafter at yahoo dot com

  2. Such a great idea to use that fun panel!

  3. This is such a beautiful set. I started my first pillow with a little trepidation as well but it does come together so easily :)

  4. Thanks for the closeups- I'd not seen that line up close before. I can see why people like it!

  7. Adorable!!!! I love the idea of sending a pillow case with the quilt.
