I'm back with installment #2 of my 2022 Make it Modern Pillows series for Riley Blake Designs! I'll be posting a new modern 18" pillow design the second Wednesday of every month! In case you missed January's pillow design, you can see my post HERE!
Here is February's design using the Blossom collection from RBD designed by Christopher Thompson. These Half Square Triangles (HSTs) and Quarter Square Triangles (QSTs) really sew up quickly! I love this Valentine's Day inspired palette too! Head over to the Riley Blake Blog to get the tutorial!
How gorgeous is this?
And gah....the texture!
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!
