When I take a class, I feel compelled to make a project I started in that class. Because of that compulsion I am feeling stressed to finish those unfinished class projects.
I finished one of those class projects today! Last year I took a needle-turn applique class, using the Hesperides pattern, with Carolyn Friedlander.
I turned the piece into a pillow cover. The fabric I used for appliqué is from stitch in dye in Austin, Texas. I bought it at their booth at QuiltCon 2018.
I’m happy with the result although I’m a little annoyed with the polyester pillow form because I can’t get the corners to fill. If you have recommendations for dealing with this or a pillow maker, please let me know.

Looks fabulous, Wanda! I hope you’ll bring to the meeting tomorrow. 😉
The pillow is small enough to stuff with cotton stuffing instead of a pillow form. I do not use poly stuffing for anything because it’s too hard and it’s a challenge to fill small spaces such as doll fingers or in your case, pillow corners. Quilting Adventures carries cotton stuffing.

Thank you for this information!
Maybe this hint will help. Don’t make the corners square:
Try it on scrap fabric first.
Thank you for this link.
