Make it Modern Pillows with RBD - January 2024

Happy 2024! I'm super exited to be on my 3rd year of Make it Modern Pillows with Riley Blake Designs! I can't wait to show you my designs for this year. In case you missed any of the 2022 and 2023 pillows, you can see them here!

December’s pillow used Half Square triangles to make simple arrows. It featured Confetti Cottons solids. The colors I used were Cayenne, Riley Hot Pink, Mac n’ Cheese, Riley Lime, Emerald City, Scuba, Azure, and Navy.

For this month's block, I used squares to make a fun folksy design. I'm calling it Feeling Folksy!


This month’s pillow features Blossom Fabric by Christopher Thompson. The colors I used were Honey, Raspberry, Peony, Wisteria, and Orange.



I did a classic grid at 1/2" with my 50wt Aurifil thread.

I am also excited to tell you I made some fun freebie printables packet to help you plan out your pillow! They include a FABRIC PLANNING PAGE, a COLORING PAGE, and a FABRIC LABEL PAGE. To get them emailed to you, fill out the form below to join my email list! 



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!
