I have decided to make one pillow a month. One pillow for each of my grandchildren.
I think a pillow with their initial on it would be a fun and personal Christmas gift.
Totally doable for me. So, yes, for the first time ever, I’m starting my Christmas list early.
Here you see the initial already machine appliqued onto a white background layered with batting and muslin. I drew a squiggly machine quilting guideline with a blue washout marker.
Next time, I think I should space that guideline further apart, but it worked out.
The squiggly line was quilted first, then the rest of the filler quilting was done.
Oops. I missed a small section. I hope the quilt police don’t find it!
I made an 18″ pillow and filled it with an 18″ pillow form. I think a bigger form might look better.
I like the railroad tracks filler. It is fun and wonky. No rules. Thanks Leah Day!
The back of the pillow has a concealed zipper.

The railroad tracks free motion quilting is from Option #1 from the February Pillow Challenge.
