  1. Start by cutting your vintage sheet into 8.5 squares. You’ll need 9 in various patterns.
  2. Patch work them together into a “9 square”.
  3. Layer your patch worked piece on top of one of the batting pieces. Pin in place for security.
  4. Go to town with your free motion quilting! Repeat steps 3 and 4 for the larger vintage sheet piece (the back of your pillow).
  5. Trim and square up your quilted patchwork piece.
  6. With the “wrong side” facing in, layer your patchwork piece on top of large square and pin in place.
  7. Sew a 1/4 inch seam around the edge of your layered pieces, leaving a 3 to 4 inch gap at the bottom for turning and stuffing your pillow.
  8. Turn your pillow. Stuff full of polyfil until you reach your desired firmness.
  9. Stitch the gap  closed (like this tutorial for an almost invisible closure!)
