Whether you have just learned to sew or quilt, or you have a good repertoire of sewing skills, this quilted pillow is an ideal quilting project. Novice sewers will learn the basics of constructing a quilted pillow and the experienced quilter will enjoy adding a variation to their quilting skills.

Hi, I'm Claudia! I've always enjoyed making things but my kids were my inspiration for getting back to sewing again. The thrill of creating something and making it uniquely your own are what inspire me to create. My interests are varied, but mainly I focus on sewing, gardening, and cooking--the things that are most beneficial to my family life right now. After taking a few courses at a local trade school to refresh my sewing skills, I realized I could combine my elementary school teaching background with my love of sewing to become a sewing instructor. My hope is to inspire others to develop their sewing skills and foster a love of creating!
