I’ve been in production mode on pillows lately. I’ll be teaching an Improv Patchwork Workshop at The Quilting Loft here in Seattle, and in Bellevue at Quiltworks Northwest, and needed some samples for the shops. Pillows seemed perfect as examples of improv piecing.

My Sewing Teacher friend Cheryl Kuczek first taught me pillows. She offers a pattern, “Perfect Pillows” that I have always followed. She will be offering follow up pillow classes to my piecework classes. Do not fear the zipper! Her business Paradiso Designs offers a variety of stellar bag patterns. Check out her article in Craftsylish too!
I picked up a current copy of Quilting Arts’ Stitch Magazine today, and what’s inside? A bunch of awesome pillows. Quick, go make yourself some fluff!
