Need a gift for the upcoming holidays or other special occasion? You can make this quilted pillow to share your love of family with those around you!
I wanted this pillow to look modern and sophisticated. I think the Navy on White Damask by Riley Blake Designs helped me to achieve this look.
Kona White and Kona Navy for the letters and background helped to bring all three fabrics together for an outstanding FAMILY…ha! Pun intended!
While testing and double testing the pattern, I made 5 pillows! One of the pillows I made used Garden Girl Damask Pink by Zoe Pearn of Riley Blake Designs. This pillow got some extra pizzazz with black pom pom trim. How cute is this?!
If you decide you like the pom pom trim (or some other decorative trim), be sure to purchase 3 1/2 yards. This will give you a bit of extra trim to match where the pom poms start and stop or to match other trim designs. Since I had never used pom pom trim before, I found a great tutorial for adding pom poms to a pillow. You can link to the tutorial here.
I will be adding this FAMILY pillow pattern to our favorite pattern website, FAVE Quilts.
