Super Secret Squirrel Pillow Making

Quilted Amy Butler Pillow

Last week, my friend Amanda came over to teach me all about quilted pillow making. She has some super secret techniques and I was her guinea pig for teaching them. She had a syllabus and told me about the history of log cabin quilted squares.

I learned about rotary cutting safety since as Amanda put it, I "was about to cut off a finger or something!" I had such a fun time making this pillow.

Amanda's reward for teaching me was some homemade beans. I feel as if it wasn't a fair trade but who am I to argue!?!

I can not wait to make many, many more of these pillows.
