Join Cupcake Quilts as we make a new pillow cover for each month, then switch out the pillow form as the season and holidays change.  Two different designs for each month will be made and fit the 8" square pillow form and a new 5 1/2" x 9 1/2" rectangular pillow form. March pillows include an 8" x 8" square pillow featuring glitter shamrocks. The second is the rectangular pillow with flying geese quilted in the hoop.  If you haven't used glitter fabric to make a project, this is your chance to see how fun the end result can be.
