First Six Finished Pillows

I'm doing this in an assembly line manner, since there are so many to finish. (I really took my sweet time making the pillow tops, and there were sixteen of them). Now I'm cutting the backs from unbleached muslin, sewing around the edges but leaving a four inch opening and stuffing the insides. The stitching to close the opening is done on my machine. I'm getting quicker at this, so each pillow takes maybe ten or fifteen minutes to finish! I'll have these ready in plenty of time for the cancer survivors group workshop coming up at Porter Centura hospital in early April.
