Right now I'm working of making pillows for the back of the day bed in my guest room. They are made out of fabric I had left over from a quilt I made for the bed. I pieced and quilted the 27x27 covers and put a zipper in the back so they can easily be removed for cleaning. I've finished one and have two more to go!

I am now following Contemporary Cloth and Maureen Cracknell Handmade on Facebook. I'll "Share" on FB and pin some items as soon as I finish here.

Love getting free fabric! Thank you for extending the offer.
