Fall Quilted Pillow


Fall Quilted Pillow

I am constantly changing my home décor to celebrate the seasons. I tend to find ways to make those changes in a budget friendly way.

Using the fabric scraps from my maple leaf quilted coffee table runner I made this appliqued pumpkin trio fall pillow.

I love the colors and how they complement the runner which is a terrific way to greet Autumn in our living room.

Machine embroidery is one of my creative passions.   The pumpkin trio design with the zig zag finish was purchased from HugABug Applique.  I used the 6 x 10 version of the design to create the 9 x 13 center panel of this pillow. 

My pillow finishes at 20 inches wide by 16 inches tall with an envelope style closure on the back. I did bind this pillow with the same fabric used for the pumpkin stems, the brown binding really gives the pillow a polished look.

Turning an embroidered panel into a pillow cushion is a great way to introduce yourself to home décor quilting. It allows you the ability to experiment with different fabrics, designs, and thread.

Do you enjoy making pillows?

Until next time happy crafting!
