Perfectly Pieced: Flag Pillow: April 2024

I absolutely loved making the Perfectly Pieced Flag Pillow this month! The Flag block is super quick (and perfectly pieced) to make with your embroidery machine.  This is the perfect decor piece for all the upcoming Patriotic Holidays.  PS: If you are not American - just don't add the star appliqué and/or change the colors! 

I love the bonus project this month .... a tote bag. Plus the Kimberbell denim tote blank was also included in the box!

To make my 18" x 18" Flag Pillow, I made (4) 8" finished Flag Blocks and used 2" finished sashing (Cut sashing: (4) 2.5" x 8.5" rectangles plus (1) 2.5" x 2.5" square for center. Instead of using the block by block quilting option - I chose to use the included all over quilting design instead and I love it! 

PS: When I do all over quilting - I really like the dime Snap Hoop Monster (magnetic hoop) - just choose the appropriate hoop for your machine.

Making pillows is a favorite project for me as they are much quicker than a full quilt and are great for decorating! I do want use my scraps and make the tote bag too!
