    I adore both finishes, but especially the pillow.All your pillows are ‘stuffed’ so perfectly. Do you have any helpful hints to share? I just finished a pillow and it is certainly not square, more curved in to the centre. Yours are always perfect!

      Thank you! I think the key is to not “overstuff” your pillow cover. I do like a plump pillow but if it’s too plump it will start to curve. I make my pillow covers exactly the size of my pillow form or up to a 1/2″ or so smaller. You’ll also notice that different pillow form brands will behave differently–some are quite a bit plumper than others. Also make sure that if you are binding your pillow cover that you figure that into the finished size of the pillow cover i.e. if your quilted pillow top is 18 1/2″ once the binding is sewn on it will measure 18″ within the binding if you have used a 1/4″ seam allowance–so perfect for an 18″ pillow form.

    What a great idea, and it is so cute! I’ve rescued a few thrift store chairs myself but none of mine have such a pretty chevron pillow. 🙂

    Very cute…but you will get “button faced” if you ever choose to sleep on it. Lol
