I'm making a bargello throw quilt for my husband for Christmas and it came out a little over 2 feet too long (which I knew would happen but I couldn't stop adding more fabric!) I chopped the end off to bring it down to size and now I'm thinking I can use that to make a nice big pillow to match his quilt! He could use a big "movie watching" pillow for his couch anyway.
I want probably either 20x20 or 24x24, and I'm not sure what type to get - I want it "cushy" but also to hold its shape and not get flat spots or compress down too much to where it gets hard or lumpy after awhile. Anybody have any suggestions where I can buy a good pillow form like that? Or suggestions as to what type would be best? I like the feel of down but my husband REALLY hates any poky feathers and I think I want it a little more structured than that anyway. Definitely don't want it to be floppy.
Here's the "chopped off" end I'll be using (the colors aren't exactly true to life but you get the idea)
