Description

With moving around and changing our location, I've had less time to attend to the matter of sewing pillows.  This month I have one pillow finished and with only a few days left to the month, I won't be getting the second one done.  I picked Chevrons to be the ONE I get finished, and it came out great.

I give the pillows I make to my daughter so I decided to change this pillow up slightly to make it fit her 14 1/2" pillow form by creating a flange around the pillow.  This way, I used the same pattern but just used the borders surrounding the center as my flange.  Perfect 14 1/2" pillow.

The front of the pillow was lined and quilted with simple lines following the chevron design.

I used Wendy's (+Caribousmom) hidden zipper tutorial just to see how easy it was as I've done them before and the steps get confusing.  Wendy's tutorial was much simpler and worked very well.  I used an aqua fabric to be the tab over the zipper.

The back of the pillow was made using left-over HSTs from the front.  I like the aqua accent on the back; it's double-sided now with a back as attractive as the front.  I didn't line or quilt the back.

February's pillow, Chevron, finished February 23rd.

ditto everyone above. Love the way the grays play together, and the way you used the blue.

Thanks to all of you, Skynme , True , +Terryt1995, HawkFan , Readerowl , Caribousmom , Carolmarie and Mymble for your comments. I really enjoyed working with the many neutrals and was happy to be able to used the blues.

The text print flange was an accidental happiness! I didn't even realize the gray print was a text until I was hunting for another darker fabric. Voila! and I was happy with the results, and pleased you liked it too.
