Hi "GoldenSunshine" Your more than welcome!! I use a running stitch to sew the 2 layers together & Whip Stitch around the edge. It will be nice to take your quilted pillows with you on your trip, you can make a bunch & then later embellish them later.
Here's some pics that might help you. Hope you have fun on your trip.
I do a running stitch around 3 sides.
Back side. Sorry it's blurry
After done sewing 3 sides & stuffed.
Done sewing together & stuffed.
Corner fold down point then the sides.
Corner all tuck & ready to sew it.
All done, now can be embelish.
See how thick it is & after quilting it, it'll be flater.
Sorry it's so long. I hope this helps you "GoldenSunshine".
This is the way I make these little quilted pillows. I know other craftsters do somethings different & that's good to have a lot of different ways to make them.
