Coney Island Pillow

Hello, Friends!
If you're like me, you don't have a lot of free time
for sewing, especially in the summertime.
Pillows are a great project,
because they're both practical and pretty...
a smart way to use precious time!

I made this particular pillow with a mini charm pack
of Coney Island, by Fig Tree Quilts for Moda.

The colors and prints capture summer's
carefree moments perfectly.

When it came time to choose the backing,
this apple green solid caught my eye.

This little pillow measures about 14" x 14".
It's not too big...just nice for cushioning a wicker chair.

I love the way this pudgy pillow fills out the form.
It's pleasingly plump!!!

Don't you love mini charms?
I love searching for matching prints
in various colorways, when I use a charm pack
or a mini charm pack.

If you have a favorite way to spend your
summer sewing hours,
feel free to comment!

  1. The pillow look so nice and fresh! You are a master in finding matching prints and colors! Thank you for remind me about this clean zipper idea and the tutorial. In the summer time I love to sew small things, fast and useful projects, recycling old clothes, and like you, make photos outside! I wish you more free time for sewing!


I look forward to your comments and will read each and every one, even if I am not able to reply to all of them.
