Make it Modern Pillows with RBD - December 2022

Make it Modern Pillows with RBD - December 2022

I'm back with my very last 2022 Make it Modern Pillows in the series for Riley Blake Designs! I'll be posting a new modern 18" pillow design the second week of every month! In case you missed November's pillow design, you can see my post HERE

This month’s pillow features Blossom Fabric by Christopher Thompson. Blossom is probably my favorite RBD basic. The colors options are fantastic and the random pattern hides seams perfectly! The colors I used (in order from left to right) were Emerald City, Green Smoothie, Red, Raspberry, and Honey. 



December’s block reminds me of a bright and happy star even though it’s not technically a star.



And it's my 12th month of matchstick quilting!

Each month the pillows will be featuring a different Riley Blake Basics collection, but of course I had to be a little extra. I decided to pick 5 of my favorite Confetti Cottons solids and make each block into a quilt sampler.

Here's my second block! I love these colors! I used Mermaid, Scuba, Mac n' Cheese, Riley Lime, and Riley Hot Pink. Each month along with my pillow, I'll show you the "brights" version of each quilt and at the end I'll reveal the final sampler quilt!




I hope you all enjoy these pillow patterns I've put together! I have a feeling I'll be making some more versions too! Be sure to share all your makes on social media and tag me on Instagram at @sewbrainy

Until later, happy quilting!
