Miss R's pillows: Orange Peel, Log Cabin, HSTs

Granddaughter #1 arrived in town and her first question was, "What are we going to CREATE?"  She was yearning to sew pillows during her visit.

I was reminded of this 
wonderful glue baste technique 
Continued to use the glue baste technique to secure the back to the front and it worked great for Miss R.
No shifting or scrunching of fabric.
And no pins that would require frequent starts & stops.
on Amy Smart's blog post on  I had first seen this glue baste technique by Sharon Schamber last year as I was trying to perfect my binding.  Sharon's daughter Cristy Fincher has a boatload of wonderful YouTubes showing this glue baste technique and many others.

I drew the diagonal placement lines & stitching lines for her and she did very well.
Raw Edge Orange Peel

Log Cabin:  3.5" center square, 2" wide logs = 16" pillow!
She stitched in the ditch
 to secure the top, batting and lining sandwich.

Then her brothers put in their requests...

They wanted pillows to match their Chevron quilts
made last Fall.
