Punched Out Star Pillow - Maxie Mail Subscription Box

The Punched Out Star Pillow was so fun to make! The Stars are pieced with Square in Square Blocks...WHAT? was magic sewing! I loved how Maxie taught me a new method of piecing Stars!!! Don't worry - Maxie has included a "how-to" video plus pattern with the September Maxie Mail Box

Let's chat more about the September Maxie Mail Box-

EVERYTHING is included in your Maxie Mail Box to sew your Punched Out Pillow!
  • Art Gallery Fabrics for pillow top AND backing
  • Batting
  • Muslin
  • Pattern with coordinating video
  • Frixion Marker
  • Creative Grids Ruler
  • Thread
  • Tea
What we learn this month
  • Cindy Williams's method of making Stars from square-in-a-square blocks.
  • How to make an envelope pillow backing.

Sewing the Stars were so quick this month...even if I made a cutting oops. That is why you should always measure twice and not be watching This is Us ;) when cutting fabric!

I love straight-line quilting and usually reserve it for smaller projects as it takes quite a bit of time and thread - but I love the look! I used the included thread in our box this month - it's a perfect match!

Maxie has a great video on making an envelope closure for your pillow - but I chose to use a zipper so I could use the extra fabric to bind my pillow!

I love my new Punched Out Star Pillow!!! Plus it matches my Tony Danza Pillows from last month!

I just have to share one more photograph- it was such a beautiful fall day! The leaves are starting to turn colors, which I just love!!! 

I enjoy receiving my Maxie Mail Subscription Box each month! I love how she always teaches us a new technique and includes the supplies to make the project! It is truly a "class in a box". They are great for anyone who loves sewing and quilting! I love how I can take a class right in my home!
