A Beautiful Use of Scraps!

String piecing on a fabric foundation makes this beautiful pillow an easy and foolproof project. You’ll love how simple it is to make and how you can use the blocks for many types of projects.

This method is perfect for using up leftover strips of fabric in your stash. Choose a color coordinated combination or simply create a lovely scrappy version where anything goes.

String Quilt a Lovely Pillow or Mini Quilt

The pillow requires just four blocks so this is also a quick project to complete. If pillows aren’t your thing, layer, quilt and bind the four-block top for a lovely table mat. You can easily add more blocks for a larger quilt, too.

Once completed, the pillow top, from┬áHelen from The Dining Room Drawers, is about 16″ square and will fit a 15″ pillow form.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
