The top: I started by cutting 24 charms (5 x 5" squares of fabric) and sewed them together into 4 rows of six. That's it!
I made a quilt sandwich with some muslin on the back and quilted along either side of the seams and diagonally across the blocks.
I made an envelope closure for the back. I cut two pieces of fabric 19 x 19" and assembled the pillow. If you are new to making pillows with envelop closures may I refer you to Katy at I'm a ginger monkey who has an excellent 5 part series on making pillows. Here is her tutorial on a envelope closure.
Now my happy quilt has a happy pillow to go with it. Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts and TGIFF on Friday.
