Christmas is a time where your work in progress list goes out the window and a bunch of new things get made instead. A mad rush of Christmas makes. I made a couple of pillows on the weekend. Pillows go together quickly and I am quite pleased with the outcome. I have this thing where I like the back of a pillow to be quite firm so I tend to look for home decor weight fabric or something like that for the pillow backs. It doesn't always work that way but I prefer it for some reason. I found something fun in my pile of non-quilting fabric and it was just the perfect back for these pillows. It is a black and white tweed suit or coat weight fabric. Envelope back. Done like dinner. I was going to do buttonholes but I interfaced the part of the pillow back that overlaps and the double thickness of the fabric made it quite thick and I was having to fiddle too much on the test buttonhole so I just went without. They look just great without too and the envelope back closes nicely. Phew! I think that if I was in the mood, a bound buttonhole would have done the trick but I don't think I have done those since sewing class in high school!
