Ruffled throw pillow. You may have seen our tutorial on how to make the long tall quilt. That's what we've got here. These are all Amy, Butler fabrics really really nice. I wanted to make some pillows to match sometimes I'll make a patchwork pillow to match a Patrick quote, but this particular long tall pattern doesn't lend itself well to making a pillow. So I'm going to show you how to make a pillow just pulling out a couple of the fabrics and I'm also going to show you how to make a quilted pillow using the same quilting pattern. We used on our long arm here.
So, let's go over to the work, the workroom and let's make the pillows to make the throw pillows I'm going to make a 14-inch pillow. So I cut a 15-inch piece of the print I'm going to use. This is going to be the ruffle fabric for it, so I'll use three widths of the fabric strips, and these are cut five inches for this pillow. I cut a 15-inch piece of the fabric that is in the quilt. This is the grunge fabric. It's got just a little hint of print on it and I put it on the long arm and I quilted it in the same pattern: that's used on the quilt, it's just stitched around the edge and it's just awesome batting. I didn't like it or anything. So for this pillow, I'm going to do a little bit bigger ruffle.
These are cut six inches, the width of the fabric, so the first step is to make the ruffles let's take these strips over and make the ruffles we're going to sew these into one long piece. So I'm just going to take the two short ends and sew them together. I'm going to use a pretty big seam on and I'm going to cut off the excess here and I'm going to do that for all these teams and then I'm going to sew it into a big long tube. But let me show you what I mean right now: it's in one big, long piece because those seams are done in the middle and I'm going to sew this last seam.
