The Top Makes a Lovely Runner Too!

This beautiful throw pillow is a great project for your favorite red, white, and blue scraps or leftover 5″ charm squares. Or make it up in colors to match a quilt and enjoy it any time of the year. It will also be lovely in Christmas colors and prints for other seasons.

The pillow top can also be finished as a table runner. It’s simple to add more stars and lengthen the borders if you prefer a longer runner.

Simply Starry Pillow Pattern

Choose a nice combination of prints for the scrappy piano key borders. Or make the classic version with a plain border by substituting bands of fabric.

Simply Starry Pillow Pattern

The designer used Robert Kaufman’s Essex Linen in White and Essex Yarn Dyed Linen in Nautical for the band of stars. Made of 55% linen and 45% cotton, these fabrics are wonderfully soft and have a lovely texture and casual look. Plus straight line quilting in contrasting thread works nicely with them. Essex Yarn Dyed Flax Linen was used for the stars and borders in the simpler version.

Once completed, the pillow designed by Taunja Kelvington from Carried Away Quilting, is 14 ½” x 20 ½”.
