Kick Back With These Quilted Floor Pillows

Get ready to become obsessed with English paper piecing (and this pillow!). Use paper templates and some simple hand-stitching to piece together the top (choose from two different layouts), then bust out your machine, quilt the top and turn it into a pillow. Before you know it, you'll be lounging in style.
