A Great Project for Leftovers, or Start Fresh with a Mini Charm Pack!

Choose your favorite fabric line for this pretty pillow and accent your selections with contrasting bands. Mini charms (2 1/2″) are perfect, or cut charm squares (5″) to size for the center patchwork.

Of course, you can also put together a lovely combination of leftovers from your stash. Choose two contrasting fabrics to set them off, in this case black and brown solids. This unexpected combination is simply beautiful.

On Point Pillow

The designer, Taunja Kelvington of Carried Away Quilting, created a second pillow with prints in the bands. That choice gives the pillow an entirely different look and is so lovely.

On Point Pillow

Both pillows are quilted with straight line quilting and have a pretty button in the center. Standard quilt binding finishes off the outside edges, and then a pillow form is inserted.

Once you have chosen your fabric, this is an easy project that you’ll have done before you know it.

The finished pillow is 16″ x 16″.
