i sometimes forget how much i enjoy how quick the process of making pillow covers is. i love the feeling of accomplishment after completing a quilt, but it does take a fair amount of care, planning, and when it comes to the task of quilting the layers together it takes a lot of muscle. needless to say, some aspects of creating a quilt become pretty monotonous. pillow covers are like your favorite quilt block, made with a fraction of the effort.this one in particular was made for my friend's daughter, who just so happens to be one of phia's best friends. it matches the twin sized quilt i have been working on for months (and hope to finish very, very soon), and was made to celebrate her move to a big girl bed.
