I just finished up my second commission. I made four pillow covers for a friend. She said she liked the construction of this pillow, but wanted harvest colors.
I wanted all four pillows to be different, but have a similar feel. I kept all the pieces rectangular and perpendicular or parallel. I constructed them all with my favorite quilt as you go technique. It's just perfect for pillows.
The top two covers are parallel strips. Some of the strips are pieced and some are single pieces of fabric. The bottom two are log cabins. I bound them in my favorite tan burlap print, which is also what I backed them in. I hope my friend likes them, if not my MIL already called dibs.
