Leftovers from an Easy Quilt Make a Pretty Pillow
Make the Pillow, the Quilt or Both!
This pretty pillow was made from leftover fabric from a matching quilt. Both are easy to make, even for beginners.
While you don’t need to make the quilt first, they look so good together you may want to anyway. Both were designed by Connie Kresin Campbell from Freemotion by the River.
Either way, start with a nice combination of fabrics in colors you enjoy. Batiks are perfect, or go with other prints. A white background sets off the colors beautifully but go with whatever you like best with the prints you choose.
The completed pillow is 18″ x 18″ (it will also make a lovely table topper!). Instructions are provided for straight line quilting and an envelope back.
A printable version of the tutorial is available here for a small fee.
The quilt is so easy to make and wonderful in any color palette. It will also be great as a scrappy quilt, so have fun going through your stash.
This is a great project for when you need a baby quilt or throw for giving, as it’s not only easy but a relatively quick finish.
Instructions are included for the following quilt sizes:
- 43″ x 52″
- 53 ½” x 63″
- 64 ½” x 75 ½”
