Nice pillows. If you want to go further, you might want to look at the Home Furnishings Workbook; here's my review-->

Very nice. And great to hear that this was your 1st try at piping; someday I will try that.

Hi Mary, your pillows are so pretty. I am sure your sister will be thrilled. A tip about stuffing--thin it out first before you put it in, make it really airy with your fingers, then gently put it in the form. Also, you can sew a bit of the filling to the corners in the seam allowances to fill out the corners. Another option is to use a down insert--you can find them cheap, and there are no worries about lumps. Sorry so long winded. :)
