Postage Stamp Pillow in Red and White

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!

Finished today is this red and white checked pillow with a vintage look, made entirely of scraps!  I used Pellon Fusible Stabilizer 1" Quilter's Grid On-Point Interfacing to secure the 2" squares together and then sewed the seams right sides together using the lines on the interfacing as a guide.  The quilt top was then quilted with a layer of batting and muslin and quilted in a straight line fashion each direction.  I'm giving thanks again for my walking foot!  The reverse is an envelope opening in a white and red floral print.  This project felt like miles of sewing, but she is pretty sweet!  She fits a 16" pillow form or an 18" pillow form for a really stuffed look.
