Pinwheel Pillow

My pillow is done and I’m quite pleased with it! A big thanks to Deanna for the nudge. Here is the top after quilting.

This is the back. There is a zipper under that flap.

I stitched the front and back wrong sides together and added a binding.

Looks just like a small quilt!

Until you add the pillow form!

Here is a peek at the zipper.

I’m so glad I did this! It wasn’t as hard as I expected. Now to come up with a plan for that other pillow form.

Have a great day!

    Did you follow a tutorial for adding the zipper or do you just know how to do it?

    Hi Katy, a nice pillow It feels good to see that you keep going on with

    your hobby! For me small projects are a pleasure in a “hot” summer !

  11. I’ve never put a zippered backing on my pillows, but I need to give it a try. Cute pillow, Katy! Those quick little projects are so satisfying, aren’t they?!

    Oh how wonderful! It looks just great with that quilt. I’ve done that flap method of inserting a zipper and it is easy and does work great for a pillow closure.
