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 January, February, March, April, May, June, and July.
For this month I made a Variable Star Remix block which jazzed up the traditional Variable Star block.
And of course lots of great colors too!
For this month's pillow, I used Mini Hashtag in green, Bee Cross Stitch in Denim , Blossom in Aqua, Texture in Glacier, Pindrop in Scuba, and of course Confetti Cottons solid in White as the background.
These colors are so calming!
I'm still loving the clean edges of no binding, so I think I might keep doing that!
For the FREE Remix 18" Jumbo Variable Star block pattern, head over to my tutorial.
There are so many great colors in the Hashtag series! What colors would you use for this pattern?
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!
