Amy Butler Pillows and Tablecloth

I found out that pillows tend to be star shaped when you stuff them. The bigger they get (and I wanted BIG) the harder it is. So my mom told me to miter the corners by an inch so they corners weren't as poky. Looks great! These are 22" big. They are not square. They taper in from the middle to the corner. By the time I got to the corner, I was taking off an inch.

Of course, I had to make the pillow form myself. It is 21" square #10 batting, stuffed lightly.  The pillow fronts are Amy Butler Fabric and the backs are Cheap-O. The tablecloth was 60" Amy Butler Lotus and 3 yards long.  The important thing was to get heavy fabric. It makes a big difference.
