ok i just thought of something and i know this may be dumb but is the cover it self 14" or is the pillow 14" I mean wouldn't you have to account for pillow fat? I'm confused
I just made a pillow cover for a different swap and I purchased an 18" pillow and made my cover 18" and it fit perfectly! I put a zipper in the bottom of my cover and after the pillow was inserted, the zipper did up fine, it didn't pull funny anywhere and the cover seemed to handle the fullness of the pillow.
I love two tone quilts and the square pieces make it a modern bit of wall art - would definatly hang it on a wall here.
When I first showed it to my son, without the playing pieces and asked if he knew what it was, he said 'It's a window' and then when I told him what it really was, he thought it was a neat idea and wanted to play right away.
