Here's a fresh, contemporary accent to rev up any room. You'll learn to give tradition a twist with these 4 super-easy blocks. Each block combines just 4 pieces cut from 10" squares of 4 different fabrics, customized to complement your decor. Follow my lead, with a cutting diagram and 6 pages of how-to's accompanied by 23 step by step photos. Or, improvise: my examples will give you the confidence to slice, rotate, and compose your own original abstract design. Finish the pillow cover with binding just like a quilt, and a simple, smart-looking button-&-loop closure on the back. BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY Just straight machine-sewing: easy-peasy SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 18" square

Recommended with this pattern

  • Start with just four 10" fabric squares.
