Half Square Triangle Quilted PIllow

Boy, that title is a mouth full, is it not? A half square triangle is a quilt block, and four of them together make this awesome pillow cover.

University of Kentucky Half Square Triangle Quilted Pillow

Yes, that's University of Kentucky fabric, along with some white on white print stars. After the holidays are over with and the madness has ceased, I'll post a semi-tutorial on how to do this. For now enjoy pics of the back and the inside and the button I made.

The inside of the pillow cover. It's covered to protect the batting and the stitches.
And it has a tag.

The envelope back with a button.

A button made with leftover UK fabric and a button from a button cover kit.

The front, flat with no pillow in it.

So, there you have it. Pics of a quilted pillow cover. I found this on Pinterest and the tutorial I used is here.

If you don't currently follow me on Pinterest or Twitter or Etsy or Facebook, you can find the links to do so in the right hand bar under 'Linkage'.

As always, spread some love and give the gift of handmade.
