We needed more storage for the boy’s board games, so I sifted through our hall closet and got rid of pillows, blankets, and anything we weren’t using. I found a pillow insert that I thought would be perfect for a Wonky Star Christmas Pillow. It measured 19″ X 13″. So, my quilted pillow top is 20″ X 14″. I prefer to stitched the front & back of the pillow together with a 1/2″ inseam for added strength. That’s why I’ve added an inch as opposed to 1/2″. The directions for the wonky star are here.
20″ X 14″ Quilted Pillow Top
20″ X 14″ Overlapped Back
When you sew the back panels onto the quilted top, you’ll have them facing each other. You can see that I don’t fold the individual panels completely over to one side, this is to save fabric. Just surge the unfinished edge and call it a day. Sew the two overlapped panels on with a 1/2″ inseam. Then, surge the edges to prevent fraying. If you don’t have a surger, zig-zag stitch as I have. Carefully, trim off the four corners. Flip over and hope your pillow insert fits!

I’m being stalked today. Apparently, Chubby wants to be photographed too!
Happy Stitching All!
