I'm back with installment #9 of my 2022 Make it Modern Pillows 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 August's pillow design, you can see my post HERE!
This month’s pillow features the Sparkler basics line by Melissa Mortenson that just came out last fall. The colors I used (in order from left to right) were Eggplant, Raspberry, Boy Blue, Denim, and Navy. Head over to the Riley Blake Blog to get the tutorial!
September's pillow uses rectangles to create this alternating pattern that has some fun movement!
And I'm still in rocking 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!
