Summer Throw Pillows

I don’t know about you, but summer weather mixed with social distancing means we spend a lot of time on our porch.  I discovered that an easy way to jazz up my outdoor furniture — and make it feel more homey — is with some throw pillows.

As you can see, I made two throw pillow covers from the same quilt block pattern.  It’s a pattern that’s built into the ScanNCut SDX 230D.

But even though the pillow covers are both made from the exact some pattern, they look quite different!

Different Fabric

Hand-Printed Fabric

It all comes down to fabric choice.  As you can see, I made one with solids and the other with mostly hand printed fabrics.  You could also alter it by turning the block or creating a pillow cover made from several smaller blocks!

With the ScanNCut there to help you cut all the pieces, this project comes together in no time at all. It’s also a great project for anyone who loves the look of quilt blocks, but isn’t ready to commit to putting together a whole quilt.

Thanks for stopping by!
