Sometimes you just need a quick, easy project to make you feel like you've accomplished something. That's what I needed today. Hence, the pillow slipcover. I've been working on this quilt and somehow ended up with an extra block (I'm not great at following patterns so this isn't unusual for me). I added some borders, a little machine quilting, an ugly thrift store pillow and, using this excellent tutorial , I now have a cute new slip-covered pillow. And when I grow tired of this pillow, the cover is easily removable and can be replaced with something else.
