Coordinate the Colors or Make Yours Scrappy!
Fabric squares are offset for an unexpected detail in this charming patchwork pillow. The pretty piecing is finished beautifully with big stitch hand quilting (although you can machine quilt with a contrasting thread for a similar look).
Select 2 1/2″ mini charm squares from a pretty fabric line or choose scraps from your stash for a scrappy look. You can also coordinate around a particular color theme and emphasize the offset patches.
The pillow top is easy to make and stitches together in a breeze. Layer it up, quilt it and add the envelope style pillow back. Finish it off with binding for the perfect accent.
The instructions, from Corey Yoder, produce an 18″ x 18″ pillow.
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!
