Colorful thread and big hand stitches become part of the overall design of this quilted pillow. If you’re a beginner, once you’ve completed the project you’ll be able to use this lovely quilting technique in many other projects as well.
The pieced top is simple to put together. Squares and half-square triangles in small-scale prints stitch up quickly and produce a charming top (learn how to make 8 half-square triangles at a time here).
If pillows aren’t your thing, think about what else you could do with this top. Add borders (or not) and make a sweet table topper. Add more squares and make it into a table runner. A wall quilt will be lovely too, as would a full sized quilt (you might consider alternating this block with a background fabric).
The finished pillow is about 18″ x 18″.
