This Pretty Pillow Offers Many Design Options

Showcase Something Special in the Center!
This pretty pillow is a lovely way to show off a square of beautiful fabric. Based on the Pineapple block, the large center offers many design opportunities.
Fussy cut a motif, like the pretty flowers shown here. Or, use an orphan applique block, a vintage embroidered linen or simply select a piece of fabric you love.
Choose complementary colors to build out the rest of the block and for the binding. While this was designed as a pillow, it will also make a lovely table mat or small wall quilt.
Paper piecing was used by the designer, Anorina from Samelia’s Mum. The finished dimensions are not provided but it appears that it will fit a 15″ – 16″ pillow form.
You’ll also need the Pineapple block template found here.
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!
