Cut and Assemble Delectable Mountains Pillow
From blue floral, cut: 2--2-1/2x42" strips for binding
2--16-1/2x20-1/2" rectangles for pillow back
1. Lay out the four Delectable Mountains units in pairs; sew together. Press the seam allowances toward the white print large triangles. Then join the pairs to make a Delectable Mountains block for the pillow top.
2. Layer the pillow top, a 20" batting square, and a muslin 20" square. Quilt as desired. Trim the batting and lining even with the pillow top edges.
3. With the wrong sides inside, fold each blue floral 16-1/2x20-1/2" rectangle in half to form two double-thick 16-1/2x10-1/4" pieces. Overlap the folded edges by about 4" (see Diagram 4) to make a 16-1/2" square. Stitch around the entire square to make the pillow back. (The double thickness makes the pillow back more stable.)
4. With wrong sides together, layer the pillow top and pillow back; baste to make a pillow cover. Use the blue floral 2-1/2x42" strips to bind the pillow cover. Insert the pillow form through the opening to complete the pillow.
