A Pillow...the 1st of many?!?!?!

So I've had these fabrics for almost a year...with the intention of making pillows for my daughters' room...which is 'Key Lime' green...it's actually a very nice color...

This is what I came up with (with the help of a tutorial found here)! A lot easier than I imagined...and it didn't turn out too bad. The pillow form itself is a little smaller than the stated size (I think) so the case is a little 'roomy'...and I wanted it to be removable so it could be washed when the girls get it dirty (and I'm sure this will happen).

The back gapes open a little...and I'm pretty sure it has to do with the lesser quality of fabric...unfortunately, my stash lacks in good quality solids/blenders of bright colors...perhaps an excuse to go shopping...Hmmmmmm?!?!?!?
So...I have several other pillow forms...I'm talking like 5 or 6 more...in varying sizes...right up to 26" square...which I'm having a hard time deciding what to do as far as the front goes...I think I would like to quilt something??? These monsters will be floor pillows...2 for the girls...1 for the boys! If anyone has any ideas...please let me know...I'm open to all suggestions!

Very nice. I like the back and the fact you can wash it. Keep them coming!!
