Mini Charm Patchwork Pillow

Hello and happy Thursday! I'm excited to share my most recent finish--a fun pillow that will look wonderful in any fabrics (I think you'll definitely want to make one of these, too)!  International Quilt Market is just over a week away, and I've been trying to think of some smaller projects I can finish fast to add some extra touches to the booth.  This got added to my to-do list in a hurry!


I'm actually going to be debuting one new mini pattern for market, too...and of


course I'll share it here, first!  So about the pillow...this scrappy patchwork pillow was a lot of fun to make.  It's from a free tutorial (I'll put a link at the end of this post) and uses mini charms and just a little bit of extra fabric!



I really love the on-point set of the mini charms.  After the center section is pieced it is trimmed into a rectangle before adding the trims...super simple even for a beginner.


I changed up the pillow back a bit and used three different prints and a zipper (hidden under the blue flap).  Since I love pillows with binding, I added that, too!




The day kind of got away from me, and the sun was going down fast, but I'm so happy I was able to snap a few photos to share with you this morning!

Okay...pillow details:
  • Finished pillow measures 16" x 16".
  • All fabrics are from The Front Porch collection by Sherri & Chelsi for Moda fabrics...available in stores in February 2018.
  • The front is quilted with a layer of batting and muslin behind the front.
  • I quilted the front as shown in the original tutorial with straight lines 1/4" from either side of the mini charm seams.
  • I used 2 1/4" wide strips of binding (2 cut at width of fabric).
  • Find the pillow back zipper tutorial here.
  • Find the wonderful tutorial by Taunja of Carried Away Quilting here.

Thanks so much for stopping by!

Perfect pillow for my western scraps to coordinate with a pillow i'm making my daughter in law for Christmas. 2 pillows are better than 1-- Have seen this on carried Away Quilting but after seeing your post-it jogged my memory that this will be a cute pattern to coordinate with what i'm making. Thanks Sherri for sharing!
