Quick quilted pillow cover

I was in desperate need to make (and finish) a quick quilted project.  I decided to make another pillow cover, yes another one!  This one was to cover one of our super comfy brown corduroy pillows on the couch.  We love them, but our couch is brown too, and they are just a bit too boring!

I found this beautiful fabric in my stash.  I'm not exactly sure what it is, but the selvage says "Studio E Fabrics".  I cut the front to size and quilted it with straight lines about every 1/2" (I just followed the edge of my walking foot).  I used the same Aurifil thread that I did on the Swoon cushion (50 wt. #2805).  I think this is my absolute favorite color thread and I've used it a lot!

And as for the zipper cover, check out how well this DS Quilts print from JoAnn Stores matches!  It's like they were made for each other :)

Doesn't my new cushion play so well with my Swoon cushion?  I just love them both together.

So, what type of project do you go to when you need a quick finish?
