Oh Deer bits pillow

IMG_2073

When I pulled out the Oh Deer Moda jelly roll quilt to finish, I also uncovered some bits left over from making the quilt top–enough to make a 20-inch pillow. I channeled my best Rita of Red Pepper Quilt’s straight-line quilting abilities (check out her quilting on these pillows–she’s crazy talented.) I am happy with the result.

For the back, I used a home dec fabric remnant left over from my purse-making days. I added the zipper using my favorite technique–you can find Autum’s tutorial here. I love how it makes a reversible pillow. This time I didn’t use the fusible tape–I was just careful with pinning the zipper.

There are two tips I would add to Autum’s tutorial: (1) remember to top-stitch after sewing the zipper to the bottom half of the pillow back, and (2) when sewing the zipper in place, it helps to sew a few inches, then leave the needle down, lift the zipper presser foot, pull the zipper pull past the point where you are sewing, then put the zipper presser foot back down and resume sewing. Then you don’t have to deal with trying to sew around the lumpy zipper pull.
