Hi! I am Amanda over here from Jedi Craft Girl. I am so excited to share with you my quilted pillow pattern. I love the fabrics at xo.gigi!! I decided on this throw pillow pattern so I could see these happy prints everyday in my home. This is a quick, easy way to showcase fabrics with big prints. This pattern is for an 18″ pillow form.
There are 3 pieces of fabric for the pillow front. Cut to these demensions:
Main teal print 12 3/4″ x 19″
Yellow accent strip 2″ x 19″
Yellow background with teal flowers 5 1/4″ x 19″
Piece the fabrics in the order below. Press seams to one side.
The pieced block should finish 19″ x 19″
I quilted mine. If you don’t have experience machine quilting, you can skip this step and sew the back on.
Using basting spray or pins, layer a piece of quilt batting under the pillow tip. I quilted mine with my walking foot sewing 1″ vertical lines.
Prepare the back
For this pillow I made an envelope back. It is super easy: no zipper, no hand stitching – YEA!! ( If you really want a zipper enclosure check out Jedi Craft Girl’s Tutorial here)
Cut 2 pieces of fabric 13″ x 19″
Sew a narrow rolled hem on one of the 19″ sides of each piece. (Below)
I think it’s cute to add a little accent piece along the back. This is optional too.
Cut a strip of coordinating fabric 2″x19″
Fold the edges (length) in 1/4″ and press
I love topstitching!!
Now pin your pillow front right sides together. Sew a generous 1/4″ seam around the pillow.
Turn your pillow and insert the pillow form.
The back is cute too!
Thank YOU Amanda for your Quilt Pillow Tutorial. What a great project. Gosh, it really looks so simple to do and your instructions really are easy to follow. I didn’t know that quilting was that simple. Oh, I must try ASAP! I have enjoyed so much reading your tutorial and obviously I already know my next sewing project. Big hugs from me! Gigi
