Pattern Details

***IMPORTANT NOTE*** This version of the Octagon Star pillow pattern is suitable for experienced sewists comfortable working from a layout diagram and basic sewing directions. If you are a CONFIDENT BEGINNER or prefer a pattern with step-by-step, illustrated instructions, please select the "PATTERN plus TUTORIAL" version of the Octagon Star instead... it provides 14 additional pages of tips, diagrams, and how-to's to guarantee your success! ****** If you love combining beautiful fabrics into a unique celebration of pattern and color, you'll love this pattern! The classic OCTAGON STAR quilt block is reimagined as a versatile pillow pattern that can be subtle or bold, traditional or ultra-modern, is crisp and clear in solids, and shows off bright florals to great effect. So many possibilities for fussy cutting those special prints in your stash, beautifully framed with coordinating borders, and it truly shines when made from your favorite holiday fabrics! I've designed this pillow in my favorite 20" square size, with instructions for adapting the pattern for 16" or 18" pillows. Pattern includes fabric selection tips, step-by-step sewing instructions, even quilting suggestions. It's such a fun and inspiring pattern, you'll find yourself turning to it again and again for holiday gifts, house-warming presents, or for your own home decor. TIP: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO PRINT THE ENTIRE FILE! This PDF pattern is designed for you to read on your computer or tablet. Save ink by reading on-screen, or choose to only print the pages with fabric requirements and block layout. When you purchase the Octagon Star Pillow pattern, you'll also receive a BONUS pillow-finishing ebook that walks you, step-by-step, through installing an invisible or lapped zipper, making a no-zip envelope back, and finishing your pillow with a bound edge if desired. Look for the download link in the back of your pattern PDF.

Aloha, I'm Stephanie Serrano, a writer and designer living in Olympia, WA, with my husband and a white cat named Halo. I've been sewing for many years (since I was a kid), and made my first quilt more decades ago than I care to admit. I adore strong colors and big, bold prints, and love to play with design and construction methods. My one of a kind quilts lean toward scrappy and improvisational, while my patterns tend to feature cleaner lines and simple construction. One of my big creative goals is to do more garment sewing and develop a fun, unique wardrobe of me-made clothing. I invite you to visit my blog at, and follow me on instagram: @venusdehilo
