Hello everyone! I’m Andy Knowlton from A Bright Corner. The Gifty Galore blog posts are just getting started and I’m looking forward to seeing what each contributor shares here! Today I’m sharing a free downloadable PDF pattern for this fun Starburst Pillow.
I love giving pillows as gifts – they’re quick & fun projects and it’s easy to customize each pillow to fit the recipient.
For my pillow I used the fun Quilter’s Candy basics . In the fabric requirements section of the pattern I list what each print is so you can find them on the website and order the same ones if you choose. I just love the fun, bright colors of the Quilter’s Candy.
Because this pillow uses fusible webbing and raw edge applique it’s a quick project. My favorite fusible webbing for pillows is Heat n Bond Lite and Featherlite. It adheres well and doesn’t gum up my needle when stitching. Connecting Threads has a similar product, Lite Steam-A-Seam 2.
Happy sewing everyone!
