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. This quilt design, tutorial and all photos are copyright Michele Foster of Mishka's Playground.

  • 18" pillow form.
