In January I started a new series for 2021 called Jumbo Blocks Rock where I take traditional 12" blocks, upsize them to 18", and give them a modern twist. Each month I've been also making a fun pillow using assorted basics from Riley Blake Designs. In case you missed them, here are the pillows from January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, and September.
For this month I made a Honeymoon Diamond Remix block which jazzed up the traditional Honeymoon block.
Have I told you how much I love the RBD stripes basics, particular in black and white? They come in 1/8", 1/4", and 1/2". And they look great in everything! Plus there are a lot of other great colors!
For this month's pillow, I went with Halloween of course! I used 1/2" Stripes in Black and White, Small dot in Orange, Medium dot in Lime, Texture in Orchid, and of course Confetti Cottons solid in White as the background.
It definitely has a funky spooky vibe!

I can't wait to see all the block and pillows everyone is making! Be sure to tag me @sewbrainy on Instagram so I can check them out! See you next month!
Until later, happy sewing!
