Description

I had not planned to make another pillow with my leftover PB&J scraps - BUT, some people asked for a tutorial on the construction I use for these pillows (including the hidden zipper), so I decided to use up more of those half square triangles from my ^sweet-life-in-pb-j quilt.

I am calling this the Compass Pillow because I thought the dark points on this one and the sense of roundness created by the white fabric made it look a bit like a compass.

Anyway...this one measures 18" X 18" and sports a pieced back and hidden zipper.

The tutorial (which is about the construction - but doesn't tell you how to make this exact pillow top), can be found here on my blog.
