This lovely pillow features the bear paw block. Done in scrappy style with coordinating fabrics and finished with custom quilting. Notice how the grey corners show off the freehand feather quilting. If you like texture this is sure to please!

Pillow Covers are a great way to seasonally change your decorating and give your room a whole new personality! You can reuse a pillow form you already have or purchase new.

Our pillow fronts are all quilted for a unique, plush look and switching out your covers is quick and easy with our overlapping back.

This quilted throw pillow cover is sized for a 18 inch (46 cm) square pillow form.**

At checkout, you will have the option to purchase the cover only or include the form. When you choose to purchase the form you will receive a polyester filled, individually compressed form, in the appropriate size. The compression simply allows for less bulk when shipping. They will inflate instantly, once you open the bag.

**Note: the 18 inch pillow form is quite snug, so; for this pillow cover I recommend using cool wash and either lay to dry, or low heat drying to minimize any shrinkage. It fits perfectly right now, however, as explained below, I do not prewash my fabrics and there will be a small amount of shrinkage if you use heat during laundering. Another option is to use a 17 inch pillow form (unfortunately, I do not carry this size right now). I tried a 16 inch and that is just too small.

Features

I always use quality fabrics and thread. In addition to good quality materials, I am conscientious about making sure I use a full seam allowance. I never leave fabrics holding together by a few threads. This ensures a quality, handmade item, that will withstand normal care and use for many years.

The inner batting layer is usually Pellon or Hobbs 80/20. Occasionally I use a bamboo batting.

Binding is always double thickness and attached by machine for added durability, with neat mitered corners.

The nice thing about quilts is that the more you use them the softer and more snuggly they become. Don’t be afraid to use them wherever you want to be…. outside under the tree, in your car, on a picnic, on the hammock, in the family room, etc. After all, we wear cotton fabrics everyday in our clothes… your quilt won’t fall apart before it gets well loved!

Remember that sunlight will fade any fabric, and your quilt is no exception.  So; have a care when you leave it outside frequently or in a sunny window.

Care

I have often washed my own quilts in with a regular wash load, with no regrets. However, it is still recommended to use a gentle cycle, mild soap and tumble drying on low heat. (** Note: I rarely prewash my fabrics. Expect a small amount of shrinkage on the first laundering.) It is the tumble drying that achieves the soft crinkly look that we associate with handmade quilts. If you prefer a flatter look, lay flat to air dry… do not dry in the dryer. 

Packaging & Shipping

I package all my items responsibly, first with a care for your purchase and then with a desire to reuse and recycle any shipping material I have around. I also refund shipping overages.
