My stash of pillow forms purchased at thrift shops and yard sales came in handy. Josh is the oldest so he got the 18" pillow form and the next four had 16" and the rest 14" pillows. Fortunately there was a pillow form sale on for ones I had to purchase LOL.
The pillows even have zipper closures in the them! Lorna had a link for a blog that had very good instructions for doing these zippers. I was very impressed with the backs. Here is a photo of the back of one of the pillows:
Sew Fresh Quilts' blog has a good photo in this post that shows the zipper in the back.

|total disaster on my cutting table getting patterns organized and fabrics chosen and cut|
|pinning on the design wall helped keep track of things|
|all blocks completed (the glasses were too small so I had to cut the larger version - they are from Elzabeth Hartman's web page)|
