Patchwork Pillows

Hello,

Pink Patchwork Cushion

I finished a couple of pillow covers this week. Small quilts are really fun to make and if you browse in Pinterest you will find so many ideas of small quilts. I personally love making cushion covers. I always using one around the house. 

Pinwheel Patchwork

I really enjoy making the pinwheel pillow above. I made the pinwheel block based on Missouri Star Quilt tutorial on you tube. I quilted in a ditch around the center block and then do diamond/diagonal quilting on the pink border. The pillow cover is finished with black and white stripe binding to give a modern look. The pillow cover closed with envelope style closure. 

Purple Pink Pillow
 The pink and purple above is another favorite color. I have the blocks from previous quilts and the size is perfect for cushion cover. I quilted using wonky stitch. I find a simple quilting lines is best to highlight the quilt block.

Green Block Print Pillow
Some fabrics are too pretty to chop, just like this green one.  I used flannel batting for most of my single cloth quilting cushion cover. If you use flannel, you don't really need to add another backing. The cushion covers will have a just perfect structure. With dense quilting, it will last for along time.


And I love different pop up pillows on my sofa and chairs. Handmade cushion covers are always the best, they are long lasting, unlike the mass produce one which at the most will last for 3 washing. Especially if you have teenage boys who always think that pillow is a ball which they can toss or throw around. All the time.

What about you? What is your fave pillow?

Until then,

Happy Quilting
