Add some beautiful colour to your living space by making a couple of gorgeous Star Explosion pillows. This pillow has an envelope back making it easy to remove the pillow form and wash just the cover. As designed, these pillows fit an 18″ pillow form; however, you can increase the border to make them larger.

Detailed, step-by-step instructions with diagrams and tips on how to press your seams are included. A blank block diagram has been provided so you can audition your fabric and colour choices. This pattern has been written for the confident beginner.

Please note: This star is included in the Delightful Stars quilt booklet and is the same finished size as the centre of this pillow.

Requirements

The requirements below are to complete one pillow:

  • 5/8 yard focus fabric (also used for the pillow back). A little extra if your fabric needs to be squared up.
  • Three coordinating fat quarters (or scraps).
  • 20" square of thin batting.
  • 20" square of lightweight cotton, muslin or cotton blend (optional for quilting the pillow top).
  • 18" pillow form.
  • General quilting and sewing supplies.
