Collection of Pillow Tutorials

Amy Ellis of Amy's Creative Side is hosting a series of Pillow Tutorials this week on her blog called the Pillow Collective. Personally, I love how pillows are such a quick finish compared to a quilt, not to mention a great way to get a quilt block or color scheme out of your system without having to commit to a whole quilt - like the paper-pieced star pillow I made last year.

Here are a few other pillow projects with tutorials that I've created:


Visit Amy's Blog as well as the other creative people listed below to see lots of ideas - new and old - that might serve as the perfect inspiration for a quick new project. Also included are lots of helpful links to tutorials for finishing pillow backs, edges, etc.

And if you would like to create a pillow of your own, you can link up later this month with a chance to win fabric prizes!

  8. Thank you for sharing these. What a great idea... Trying out a quilt block with a pillow without committing to a whole quilt! Then if you do like it, then the matching pillow(s) are already made.

Thank you so much for your comments - they make my day! I try to respond to as many as my 'mommy' time allows, but life sometimes gets in the way. Please know how much I appreciate each of them.

I apologize for the current comment settings that require a registered user account. They are the only way that I don't get tons of gross spam. I'm hoping Blogger will make a way where people who are not registered users, but would like to leave a comment can do so. Please, Blogger! In the mean time, thanks for your patience.

I also love to respond to questions. If you are a no-reply blogger, please leave an email address so I can get back to you. Or you can email me directly: amy @ diaryofaquilter.com. Thanks!
