Simple Patchwork Pillows - FREE Pattern

One thing I love making right now are pillows. When I made my first quilted pillow, I had no idea how much I'd enjoy making them and how dare I say...addicting...they'd turn out to be.

Over Christmas, I made this super simple and oh so cute Christmas pillow from a collection of my vintage/vintage inspired Christmas fabrics I love to hoard keep on hand for Christmas projects.  I made three of them as gifts.



Christmas. I love it.

Then I made the same pillow using one of my beloved Happy Go Lucky charm packs (I just cut it into 2.5" squares) to make for my friend Christine.


 

Then I made all of these.


See addicting.

So today I'm sharing the pattern for these pillows because they really are super simple and super addicting. (It's so simple, but the pattern includes full directions on finishing the pillow.) So dig out that random mini-charm pack and make something fun and quick for yourself. Or cut that prized what-in-the-world-can-I-make-with-only-one-charm-pack into 2.5" squares and have enough fabric for four pillows. You know one for you the rest for friends...or for your couch. Because a couch full of pretty pillow like these....is quite a fun sight.


 

That is until, your kids or husband, throw them on the ground one minute after you arrange them just so. Oh well, even if that happens, take a picture to document it and frame it where you can see if often. Then you can sigh at pillow perfection whenever you feel the need. 

Happy Sewing!

Vintage Holiday Quilt Along (QAL)

It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas....in August?! Yes, in August. Because when you're a quilter that's when you have to start your Christmas sewing.

For the longest time, I've wanted to make the beautiful Vintage Holiday Quilt by Thimble Blossoms. When I saw the beautiful reds, greens, and aquas in the Hello Darling line - I knew I had to make it! I posted the idea on Instagram to make Vintage Holiday using Hello Darling in May and asked if anyone would want to do a quilt along. I should've known the answer - of course! Chrissy from Sew Lux Fabric joined in the fun by asking me to put together a kit. The kit is gorgeous and a few are still available on her website.

So here's some general information:

1. What's a Quilt Along? (QAL)
A QAL is where a group of quilters make the same quilt and share their progress. Super simple. We will be using Instagram for this QAL which brings me to 2...

2. This QAL is taking place on Instagram.
This QAL is taking place on Instagram so you need an Instagram account.  Instagram is available as an app for smart phones. You can watch the fun from your computer, but you can only post pictures  from your smart phone. Note: If you want everyone to see your photos, you need to have a public account. If you have a private account, consider opening a second account that is public for sharing sewing projects. That way people can see your photos.

3. Follow me @everydaycelebrations on Instagram.
That way you can keep up with the "schedule" (I use that term very loosely) and for giveaways and all the fun!


4. Use the hashtag #vintageholidayqal when sharing your photos.
That way your photo will appear with everyone participating in the QAL.



5. Fabrics.
Chrissy from Sew Lux Fabrics is offering a kit featuring Hello Darling. There are a limited amount left. You of course are welcome to use whatever fabrics you like, but a kit option is available.

6. When do we start?
September 1st! See you then!

If you have any questions, let me know! I check my Instagram more frequently than the blog, so if you need a quick response try there!

Grand Old Flag Pillow Pattern and Mini Block | FREE Pattern

Hello end of June! A couple of weeks ago I shared this fun Fourth of July pillow I made on Instagram


It got some love and interest and so tonight I'm happy to share a new pattern! Grand Old Flag is now  available as a FREE download right here on my blog. I included material lists for both a pillow and just a single flag block too. It measures in at a tiny 3.5" x 5.75".  I always double and triple check my measurements, but if you find any mistakes, please let me know. If you make something using the pattern,  I'd love to see it! If you're sharing on Intagram use the hastags #ecgrandoldflag or #ecquilts.

Happy Sewing!

Fourth of July Pillow - All Season Patchwork Pillow Template

...to see what I'm up to check my Instagram for more frequent updates....

 Happy Summer everyone! We are settling into our summer routine and gearing up for a summer of fun. This week we've been getting the house ready for the Fourth of July. (Nothing too fancy, just some fun decorations we've collected over the years.) I've always loved the 4th and look forward to it every year.  I thought it would be fitting to make a new All Season Patchwork Pillow to add to our decor.

I love how it turned out! If you've already purchased this pattern, you can download Fourth of July template here.  (The template is only the template for the number 4, no other directions are given.)  If you need the pattern, you can find it here in my Etsy shop. The pattern includes templates for a Halloween and Christmas version too! I plan on making more for other occasions and additional templates will be available here on the blog for FREE to download.


Here's to lots of red, white, and blue in your future!
