14. Easy Quilted Throw and Pillow

When my kids were small they liked using their baby quilts while watching movies and playing in the family room. As they grew, I wanted to save those, so I made some similar size quilts. This is actually my 2nd set and we use these every day! We have 2 of the quilts and 2 pillows.

The quilts were made with strips of fabric sewn on the machine. I laid this on quilt batting, then on a piece of a sheet. I pinned it all together and used yarn ties since I didn't want to take time to actually quilt it all. I finished the edges by hand after trimming the excess batting. It wasn't too difficult even for those who have never attempted a quilt.

I also wanted to point out that the pillow cases I made to match are removable. Every couple of weeks I wash and dry it all, so I feel it is fresh and clean.

This is the back. It overlaps, but it's not difficult to insert the pillow.
