If you follow us on instagram, you will have seen some progress shots of our Rainbow Connection Pillow over the past days. This is our newest pattern and was so much fun to sew! I love how colourful it is with each block showcasing a different colour. It was fun to sort through my fabric scraps to find fabrics in each colour. It is a great scrap buster project! I combined floral prints, polka dots, ginghams, stripes, and small scale retro prints; with a bunch of volume fabric scraps. The contrast between the bright colours and the low volume fabrics, really makes the colours pop.
The pattern consists of nine pineapple blocks that are foundation paper pieced. Each block measures just 5 inches square when finished, so the foundation piecing ensures accurate results.
I made each block in a different colour, mixed with some low volume fabric scraps. You could change the look of the pillow completely by changing your fabric selection.
The 10 page ePattern comes with plenty of photos and the foundation paper piecing template (ready to print in both A4 and Letter size) that you need for the block construction.
The Rainbow Connection Pillow is finished with a zipper and measures 18 x 18 inches. It’s colourful appearance makes it perfect for a children’s bedroom or playroom, although a different colour choice could change the look completely.
Here is a sample page of the pattern which shows the fabric requirements.
