Want to learn how to sew a beautiful quilted pillow like this?  All it takes is some fabric strips and about one hour of your time. 

I took 10 fabric strips from the Dena Design Taza Fabric Jelly Roll.  This Jelly Roll provides you with 1 fabric strip from each design in the Taza Collection. 

Each fabric strip in the jelly roll is 2.5 inches wide.  Take 2 strips and cut a 2.5 inch piece of each strip.  You should end up with 2 fabric squares, each measuring 2.5" x 2.5".

 Sew the two fabric squares together and top-stitch the seam (you don't have to top-stitch but I like the top-stitch look a lot).

Place the 2 sewn together squares on another fabric strip as shown here.  Sew them together, up to where the 2 squares end and then cut the remaining fabric of the 3rd fabric strip off....

...end result should look this this. 

Continue the previous steps and your quilt square should look like the following pictures...

You just continue to add one fabric strip after another to your square.  I am making a pillow cover for a 18 inch insert so I need a square measuring 18.5" x 18.5".  My finished square looks like this:

If your pillow insert is smaller, just cut the quilt square into the size you need.  I always cut it 0.5 inch larger than the size of the pillow insert.  Once done with sewing and serging the cover, you should end up with a pillow cover measuring 17.5" x 17.5".  Your cover should always be smaller than the insert so the pillow looks nice and plumb once you put in the insert. 

I cut another 18.5" x 18.5" piece for the other side of the pillow cover. 

I put an invisible zipper for this pillow cover but you can do an envelope closure if you are not a fan of sewing in a zipper :)

Taking only a few fabric strips and about an hour of your time, you should end up with a gorgeous quilted pillow like this:

Using jelly rolls / pre-cut fabric strips is a great way to save time and money.  You don't have to spend time on cutting the fabric (least favorite activity for most people) and you get a large variety of fabric designs without spending a fortune.
