Scrappy Pillows

Several months ago, I bought some throw pillows on clearance at Target.  I bought 2 of these long, bluish-green fake fur pillows that look like this:
Trust me, they are much greener in person than they appear in the picture.  Anyhow, after making the scrappy quilt for my bed, I decided it was time to make some pillow covers, too.  
I hand-quilted the square one on the right, using white DMC floss.  The one on the left is machine quilted in the ditch.  I might add some hand quilting to this one, too.  I love the texture it adds.  They both have the simple envelope type of back.  So easy....
The square one has a 14 inch pillow form inside.  I still have a new 16 inch pillow form, so I will make a cover for that, and I also have one more of the fake fur pillows, so will make a cover for that, too.

I loved the hand quilting you did on the square one and the variety of sizes you are doing.
I kinda like that fake fur just as it is. In the picture it matches nicely. Maybe one of your future quilts will use the fake fur color as inspiration and the pillow can be used as is.
