Swiss Dots Blocks and Stars Remix

Swiss Dots Blocks and Stars Remix

In January I started a new series for 2021 called Jumbo Blocks Rock where I take traditional 12" blocks, upsize them to 18", and give them a modern twist. Each month I've been also making a fun pillow using assorted basics from Riley Blake Designs. In case you missed them, here are the pillows from JanuaryFebruary, March, AprilMayJune, JulyAugustSeptemberOctober, and November. This is the last one!

For this month I made a Blocks and Stars block. I removed the Square in Square blocks on the edges and replaced them with points. I like the way it lightens up the block!

For this month's pillow, I decided to play with some polka dots! I used Swiss Dot in Navy, Peacock, Coral, and Baby Pink. And of course Confetti Cottons solid in White as the background. 

I love these colors together! I went with a simple wavy line for the quilting.

I can't wait to see all the block and pillows everyone is making! Be sure to tag me @sewbrainy on Instagram so I can check them out!  See you next month!

Until later, happy sewing!
