Churn Dash Pillow

Last year, Betsy won my blogiversary giveaway, and I promised a handmade pillow. She requested green and blue with a nested churn dash. It was so fun to pull fabrics/scraps for this!

I used the Skinny Churn Dash tutorial by HoosierToni, which has never led me astray.  At one of our guild "sewcials"/sewing days, I free motion quilted the top of the pillow. There is one layer of batting and a layer of muslin behind it. Then, I made the rest of the pillow envelope-style, and voila!

I had hoped to get this pillow to Betsy earlier (like, before Christmas) but it stayed on my to-do list until the end of February. Thanks for your patience. :D Also, look how beautiful her pillows look together in her house! Love!! Betsy made the pillow on the right - it's Elizabeth Hartman's Mod Mosaic pattern.

Thanks for all the well-wishes - I'm feeling a bit better today (maybe 70%). Hopefully I'll be done with this horrid cold this weekend! Then, I can get back to sewing!


  1. Hurray for fun giveaways! Looks like something fun to make, and really nice with her blue pillow! I had a pick-your-own style giveaway back in January, I think, and the item is still on my to-do list! Hoping to get it done in the first half of April...

  2. I am glad you are on the mend; I hope you are back to 100% really soon. The pillow looks great, especially next to its friend. I really love getting to see items in their forever homes. ;)

  3. This is the look of a quilter I aspire to be. Just love your style!

  4. Hi , do you buy or make your own pillow inserts?
