Yesterday I decided to make a couple pillows to match my Petunia Strings by the River quilt. Be sure and check out the tutorial and use your scraps up!

I always love pillow as they are fast to make and a lot easier to free-motion quilt!

Both pillows use a 16 inch pillow form and have muslin on the back. I am working on a tutorial and had hoped to put that up today but I didn’t like some of the photos I took so I’ll redo some and have it up next week.

Notice the quilted king size pillow shams in the back? I made them last year and they are out of muslin, you can read about them here.

I love using muslin in my quilts; I love the old fashioned look of it and it is affordable. A couple people asked about the muslin. I use a premium grade muslin, permanent press and pre-shrunk. I have never actually bought any online as I usually buy it at JoAnn’s with a 50% off coupon. I like to keep plenty on hand. If I happen to run out our Walmart carries fabric and they have a brand of muslin that I like.

  1. Pillows look great and are wonderful with the Petunia quilt. I like muslin, too, but like you I only use the good quality stuff. I buy it by the bolt! lol

  2. Your "petunia sings" oopps I meant your petunia strings quilt is lovely and it seems like it does just sings. Nicely done. Which pattern did you use? Jane

  3. I love to use muslin in my quilts too. I especially like to use the 108" wide on the back of my quilts. The quilting looks stunning. I can't wait for the pillow tutorial – I am need to make a couple of pillows for my couch upstairs 🙂

  4. The pillows are lovely and your Petunia String quilt is gorgeous! Love the colors! Hope you have a lovely weekend! =)
