The 4th of July is less than two weeks away! I meant to have this tutorial finished and ready to share weeks ago, but, as often happens around here, life got in the way. (Do I sound like a broken record?) It is a quick sew, though, thanks in part to some of the speedy piecing methods that I used! I made the pillow version above in a few hours on a rainy Saturday afternoon, and I’ll probably keep it on my entry bench year-round. I think it works well with our cottage decor.
This tutorial includes instructions for making a mini-quilt top or a pillow top that you can finish to fit a 14” x 20” travel pillow. Of course, you could sew a stack of these and put them together to make a quilt, too! I’m planning to do that as soon as I get a few other things off of my list.
This is my first time writing an actual quilt pattern, and I’m trying out some things that I haven’t used before. Please feel free to let me know what you think about the way it’s written. I would love ideas for how I can make it better. (I’m already thinking that the colors on the images are really too dark to print if you’re using a black and white printer.)
