I don't use pillow forms, they are a bit too costly.

I purchased these when we visited my sister in Missouri

Hankie Quilt Scrappy Part 1 

bethanndoing.com

I purchased every kind they had and I'm putting them together in a scrappy quilt
Come follow along and if you don't have hankies a large square will do the same thing.

I decided on the pieces I'd use 
these hankies are 15 1/2" x 15 1/2"
so after sewing a finished size of 15 x 15"
