    I really love the colours you’ve used this time (I love the original one too, but I’m a sucker for purples). Your instructions are so clear, I might just give it a go!
    And good work on making a video!! Congrats on your new “clogging” skill.

      Thanks so much! I rarely use purple, but I really love how this one turned out.

    Oh My Goodness! This is my favorite tutorial ever! If I wasn’t sitting at work, I would go grab some fabric right this minute and give it a try! I loved your pillow, and you are so gracious to share your secrets. In fact, I started following you because of that pillow. ;-)

    I loved this when I saw it on Flickr, thanks for the tutorial. My mum loves Mackintosh roses, and this reminds me of one, so I think I will make it for her.

    Thank you for your generous free tutorial. I love it a lot and it will be my first attempt to give it a try with the “quilt as you go” method. Have a nice sunday. Here it is snowing in a nice way.

    Thanks so much for sharing your tutorial for this pillow! I pinned the blue/yellow one awhile back and I really want to get going on one maybe for a gift, or for myself, or both!! You are really gracious to share this for free! I have a question… When you’re making a quilted pillow cover, do you make it 1 inch smaller than the pillow form? Or do you use a fill? Thanks!

    • Cori
      September 23, 2013

      I do make it slightly smaller than the pillow form, but not too much smaller since it’s pretty stiff and doesn’t give a lot. Start out with a square that’s about an inch bigger than the final size pillow you want — you’ll lose some as you square it up as you go along. Let me know how it goes!!

      Hi Janice — it’s never-ending! So many things to try! :)

    Does the quilt block become thick after adding over the ends?
    Will try it soon to see for myself.
    thanks for the directions.

    • Cori
      October 5, 2013

      Hi Bev — the quilt block is definitely thicker than a standard quilt block. That’s why it’s better to use it for pillows or a bag instead of an actual quilt.

    This looks like such fun. Can’t wait to try it after the Christmas rush! Thanks so much for sharing!

    This is really unique! I was wondering if a person couldn’t just sew several of these for a lap size quilt? Being there is, or appears to be, a good inch lap at the edges of each square? Or is this only good for a pillow pattern being you’re adding your batting on in the beginning? It is beautiful…love the colors you have chosen as well.

    • Cori
      October 14, 2013

      Because you quilt as you go, the back is UGHLY. So you’d have to add another layer of backing fabric and then quilt again — but I think that would ruin the look on the front. Make sense? It’s also incredibly dense — not very pliable and comfy. That’s why I think it’s so good for pillows or panels for a bag. If someone does make a quilt, I’d LOVE to see it!!

    I love the finished product! Question, is there a lot of bulk with all the layers? Thanks

    • Cori
      October 19, 2013

      It’s definitely heftier than pretty much anything else I sew — that’s why it’s perfect for a pillow panel or a for making a bag :)

    i love this tute! any tips for making it into a mug rug without an ugly back? should i try quilting as i go just to the batting and then adding the backing with some very simple quilting? thanks again!

    I can’t wait to try this. Place mats and maybe a funky quilt using Christmas fabrics. Thanks for sharing.

    I couldn’t resist watching the video after reading your comments on it. I was expecting much more fun from it. LOL. Next time mess it up a bit more for our pleasure, ok? Thanks for the QAYG. I have tried it a few times without much success. Yours looks easy. Gonna give er a go.

    Have you ever thought about adding a little bit more than just your articles?
    I mean, what you say is valuable and all. Nevertheless think of if you added some
    great images or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!
    Your content is excellent but with images and videos, this site could definitely be one
    of the best in its field. Superb blog!

    Saw your auction pillow on Pinterest and dug around till I found your tutorial. Thanks so much for sharing! I have no clue how to include a pic but I just finished one today and I can’t wait to make more! Took way more fabric than I planned on and had a few pieces get totally hidden but its awesome.

    I tried this as my first QAYG project. I know, I should have started with something simple, but that’s not how I roll. I made a pillow using yellow to green batiks. It was easy, fun, and it turned out so well I am giving it as a gift. Next week I think I’ll try the North West panel. Thanks for the tutorials!
