Pillow Project DIY | I Love Home Quilt Blocks

All posts may contain affiliate links.

It’s time to make something fun with the I Love Home Quilt blocks. If this block series is new to you, it was designed by Jacquelynne from The Art of Home, has been so much fun! Each month I have shared a few pictures of my block in progress and host a giveaway. Click here to see my previous blocks.

I'm finishing up the I love home quilt along with a DIY pillow project. Each block offers a fun applique design for you to stitch out.

 

The main quilt is designed to be hand appliqued but I just had to infuse my style and layer on some free motion quilting.

Supplies:

  • I love home pattern
  • Assorted fabrics
  • Backing fabrics
  • Sewing machine
  • Iron
  • Pillow Insert
  • Basic Sewing Supplies

*Fabrics used in block include Patrick Loose Christmas Cheer , a few batik scraps and Kona Storm for the border & backing.

While the blocks were designed to be turned into a quilt, I thought it would be fun to turn each block into a colorful pillow.

To make that happen, I strip pieced together a piano key border for the outside. But when I placed it next to my block it felt lack luster. So, I sliced into my Kona Storm and created stashing to really frame the center block.I'm finishing up the I love home quilt along with a DIY pillow project.

Once the border was stitched on, it was time to layer the finished top with batting and start quilting. To keep my first row of stitches on track, I grabbed the washi tape and used the laser guide beam. These really helped me keep things on track for the perfect finish.

The laser guide beam on my machine made it so easy to quilt this pillow project.

I really like the way my mini diamond grid worked out.

To keep this pillow project a quick win at the sewing machine, I kept in simple with an envelope construction but a zipper closure would be perfect too. In the end, I love the way it came out. Here are a few close ups of the finished pillow.
