Basting the edge would hold the seams in place while preventing them from fraying.If you don’t want to use buttons, you can attach a zipper in between two layers instead.You can find templates of different shapes and sizes of pillows on Pinterest.

Using a ruler, draw a line where you’d like the corners and cut along the lines.

Purpose of quilting

Originally, the purpose of quilting is to put cotton as a heat insulating material in a thin cloth and finish it into a single piece of cloth.
There are several purposes for quilting with bedding, and one of the major purposes is to maintain the shape of the futon and make it usable for a long period of time by preventing the bias of the inner cotton, so that it can be washed evenly to keep it warm. And so on. The second purpose is as a decoration. In addition, by applying a special quilt, it creates a futon shape that fits the body shape, prevents the futon from slipping, and enhances the heat retention effect. It is no exaggeration to say that it is a functional beauty processing technology.

Sewing thread No. 60 (No. 60 is the thickness for ordinary ground)
The color of the thread should be as inconspicuous as possible according to the cloth,by doing so, even if the seams are slightly bent, they will not be noticeable and the finish will be beautiful. This time I’m using beige.

How to make
Prepare an ironing ruler.
The iron ruler is a tool used when ironing by folding the sewing margin according to the dimensions. There are commercial products, but you can easily make them with thick paper.

Prepare the pillow quilt

cloth Cut the cloth into 50 cm squares. Firstly, fold the cloth in half and place it so that your ears are on your left side.
Place a 50 cm ruler at the bottom edge of the cloth so that it is perpendicular to the left ear, and draw a horizontal line with a chaco pen. If the edge of the cloth is straight and horizontal, you can leave it as it is.
On the left side of the cloth, place a line drawn at the bottom edge or a ruler perpendicular to the edge of the cloth and mark 50 cm.
Also, on the right side, place a ruler vertically on the line drawn at the bottom and mark 50 cm.
Connect the marks on the left and right and draw a horizontal line.
Cut along the line so that the four corners are at right angles.
Let’s align the width in the same way. Make two marks at the top and bottom 55 cm from the “wa” (crease of the cloth), draw a line vertically, and cut.
I was able to cut it.
Mark the fold line Open the cloth and place it with the back side up. Then, Mark the red mark according to the dimensions shown in the figure.
Fold the horizontal edge in three to get rid of it.
However,using an ironing ruler, fold the left and right edges 5 cm along the fold line and iron.
Furthermore, Fold the horizontal edge in three to get rid of it.
Using an ironing ruler, fold the left and right edges 5 cm along the fold line and iron.
Fold it along the fold line again, fold it in three with the edge of the cloth wrapped around it, and iron it.

Sewing the pillow quilt

The upper and lower ends are sewn in a bag.
Finish ,the upper and lower edges with a bag stitch that does not fray easily. First, sew 1 cm straight from the top while still folded at 5. Sew the bottom edge in the same way.
The upper and lower ends are sewn. If there is a long frayed thread coming out from the edge of the cloth, cut it at this time for a beautiful finish.
Next, turn it over and sew the upper and lower ends again to finish the bag sewing. First, turn it over, shape it with an iron, and use a pin to Sew straight 1.5 cm from the top. Sew the bottom edge in the same way.stop it in several places.
The upper and lower end bag sewing is finished.
Turn the whole thing over again and you’re done.
Insert, the cushion from the part where the cloth on the back side overlaps. By the way, the design is such that the opening is slightly closer to the edge than the center so that the cushion can be easily inserted.
Put the cloth on the other side over the cushion.
There, is a cushion.

Make a pattern that matches your cushion size

Here are two formulas for making patterns so that you can make a square pillow quilt of your choice. All the cloths used are 110 cm wide.
First, let’s calculate from A to E in order. If you can calculate, please apply it to the figure. The last E is the scale (required cloth length).
<For cushions of 10 cm square to 45 cm square>
[A] Finished dimensions
[B] A ÷ 3 = B * Please round down after the decimal point.
[C] AB = C
[D] 20 cm + A + B + C = D
[E] A + 5cm = E (scale * required cloth length)
<For cushions of 46 cm square to 105 cm square>
[A] Finished dimensions
[B] A ÷ 3 = B * Please round down after the decimal point.
[C] AB = C
[D] A + 5cm = D
[E] 20 cm + A + B + C = E (scale)
Cushion patterns ,of 46 cm square to 105 cm square are cut in a different direction from the basic method. The cloth is cut sideways to the ears of the cloth, so be careful when using a cloth with a fixed pattern direction.
