A rustic Alphabet QUBE pillow

Did you see this fun ABC pillow I made for Accuquilt’s blog recently?

Here are the GO! dies I used:

Fabrics needed:

  • 1/4 yard of white, and two different brown fabrics
  • Two gray fabrics for the letters
  • 1/4 yard or a Fat Quarter (FQ). I used scraps that were big enough. 
  • Scraps of brown fabric for each of the animals and acorn
  • Heat n bond lite.

The blocks are actually 9” finished but made from the 12” QUBE set to make the attic window

I then prepped all the applique pieces and cut out 6 upper and lower case letters

and 6 appliques to match

Then I laid them on the blocks and appliqued around

Then sewed it together like this using a walking foot

and sewing the sides together is a bit tricky, but doing them one side at a time is not hard, I just stopped 1/4” from the beginning and ends and backsttiched

Then left an opening for stuffing, turned right side out and filled with fiber fill!

and then here’s the cute pillow!
