Because it doesn’t take very long once you actually start. The top is from the Allietare mystery quilt-along in 2015, by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville. I used some leftover 4-patches, and some more, set on point for the side panel (approximately 4 1/2″ wide), and backed it with grey chevron flannel. I then stuffed it with a queen size down duvet we don’t use because it’s too hot for my husband. Here’s where I confess that I completely copied this idea from Nicole at Snips Snippets, right down to using her photos to figure out approximately what size to make the pillow. Mine is an octagon-ish.
As you can see, it is a success.
