Welcome to the February 2024 installment of the Make it Modern pillow series that I created for Riley Blake Designs! In this series, you'll find a collection of 18" modern pillows with a bold modern geometric design that you can easily customize for any space.

Grab your favorite quilting fabric and thread to whip up your own quilted pillow to enjoy at home or give as a gift. Great for both experienced and beginning quilters, this quilt project will quickly jump on your to-do list!

In case you missed it, last month's block used squares to make a fun folksy design. It featured Blossom Fabric by Christopher Thompson. The colors I used were Honey, Raspberry, Peony, Wisteria, and Orange.

For this month's block, I used alternating log cabin sections that look like they're bouncing around. I call it Cabin Crush.
