Assembling the Project:

- Using the photo as a guide, lay out the letters onto the pillow front. Heat fuse in place with an iron.
- Stitch around letters.
- Layer the batting and pillow top. Quilt by hand or machine as desired.
- Layer the pillow top and pillow back with right sides together. Pin and sew with a 1/2" seam allowance, leaving an opening approximately 6" long to insert the pillow form.
- Clip excess fabric in the corners on the diagonal. Turn right side out, insert the pillow form and whipstitch closed.
