Today I am sharing how to create a Stamped Faux Quilted Pinwheel Pillow using my Background Basics Stamps and Crafter’s Inks. This is…oh so Quick & Easy to make!
Here’s how I created this Faux Quilted Pinwheel Pillow
I stamped out my pattern by inking up each stamp and placing them closely together, to get even spacing around each stamped pattern.
I started by stamping with the square Checks in Blueberry and Basket in Ocean Breez on the left side of the fabric in the following order: 1 Checks 2 Basket and 1 more Checks.
For the second row I stamped 1 Basket square in Ocean Breeze then, used the Picnic triangle in Berry and Diamond triangle in Aquamarine, followed by the Picnic triangle in Sunshine and the Diamonds triangle in Tangelo, ending with the Basket square in Ocean Breeze.
For the third row I stamped 1 Basket square in Ocean Breeze then, used the Diamond triangle in Limelight and the Picnic triangle in Evergreen, followed by the Diamonds triangle in Sand and the Picnic triangle in Lilac, ending with the Basket square in Ocean Breeze.
For the fourth row I repeated row one.
Heat set the ink with a dry iron.
Place the stamped block onto the Soft & Toasty Quilt Batting…
Then quilt the two layers together by sewing between each of the stamped blocks. Sew all the way around the outside of the block, this will give you a guide for the next step.
Place right sides together of the quilted top layer and the backing fabric. Stitch around the outside leaving a 2 inch opening.
Fill the pillow with Poly-fil and then, stitch the opening closed.
Sew a large button to the center using a tapestry needle and Kreinik thread.
That’s it…now you have a Stamped Faux Quilted Pinwheel Pillow…Quick & Easy!
