A Pillow For The Dress Quilt

When I made the dress quilt for Rachel, I made a practice square. I cut out a dress shape and fused it to a scrap piece of off white fabric.

After I finished the quilt, I didn't want to discard the practice square.  I thought I could use some of the left over batting to make a simple pillow.


I added a simple border from the dotted fabric. and a yellow dotted fabric for the back.


I stuffed it with many layers of the batting.  Batting is pretty thin, so I used a lot, but the end result is still pretty flat.


I like the combination for a young girl.


I hope Rachel likes it.

I wish I could fly in to visit.  Guess I'll wait a few months until it isn't so virus-y.


  1. Love the quilt and the pillow. My grandmother would always make pillows from her quilt items.

    1. How nice! I've often thought of it, but this is the first time I made one. I made it flat for a little girl, but I will try a more traditional shape next time.
