Make it Modern Pillows with RBD - January 2022

Hi everyone! Happy 2022! 

If you liked my Jumbo Blocks Rock series last year, I have a great new project this year with my friends over at Riley Blake Designs! They asked me to design a series of 18" modern pillows for 2022 and of course I said yes! I came up with a collection of quick makes that can use any fabric to make a bold statement!

Here is January's design using the Texture collection from RBD designed by Sandy Gervais. These half square triangles go together in a snap! 



These colors look so great together!



And the quilting is simple but I love it!

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 first 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!
