A Groovy batik pillow

I’m sure you saw it already on accuquilt’s blog

I made this groovy star pillow (cover) in batik scraps from Island baitk!

I made it using the 10” QUBE set so the pillow is 20” x 20” finished

You may think that LeMoyne star blocks are hard, but they are not and ESPECIALLY easy with a QUBE set!

I show more details in the blog post, but you use the paralellogram die and cut out the pieces and then the large triangle and sew together the block pieces into large triangles (half being mirror image of each other)

I made this blue pillow a while ago with Island Batik scraps as well!

Here’s the block from EQ!

It’s easy enough to make it bigger and just add more triangles and squares!

Beautiful pillow cover! I just finished a king size Lonestar Quilt piecing all of the little diamond one by one. This looks so much easier!
