ENVELOPE PILLOW BACK–overlapping back closure (no zipper!!)
Each back piece will be the same width as the front side and 1/2 of the length plus 4 inches to account for seams and overlap (the envelope part.) Sound confusing? Just keep reading!! There’s pictures!!
For example, the pillow insert is 16 inches so half of that is 8 inches + 4= 12 inches. Each of the back pieces will be 16 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
Attach each back piece to Pillow Cover. Make a quilt sandwich.
NOTE: Cut batting 1” shorter on each end. This will result in less bulk when edges are turned under for a finished edge. Quilt entire piece, making both back & front of pillow quilted!
Turn under edges on Pillow Back & hem. With right sides together, overlap back pieces onto front. Sew seams together. Turn right side out through envelope back. You’re done!!
Envelope Back: Nice, clean finish on the back!
