A Friend For My Pillow

A Friend for my Autumn Star Pillow

I decided my couch looked kind of funny with one fall pillow (my Autumn Star Pillow) and one regular pillow. So I made a friend for Autumn Star.

I wanted to use the same general fabrics but not the same design, so I made a couple columns of flying geese. I chose to paper piece them because I’m just so much more exact when I use that technique. I didn’t make a tutorial but I did make a PDF of the templates I whipped up to use. You can download it here.

Fall Pillows

I was able to fit 10 on one sheet of paper but you’ll need to print 2 sheets if you want to make a pillow like mine. You’ll have a few leftover. If you’ve never paper pieced before – these are easy! I have a tutorial on the technique here.

I think they look happy together!

    Bonus! I was drooling over this fall stars blocks earlier, and now I get to see her/his? buddy! They go so well together, and I love how your fabric choice updates and freshens the whole look! THANK YOU for the flying geese PP templates and tute. Been looking for one and I knows yours will work :D

      Hi Patti! The text fabrics I used in these projects are both from Sweetwater for Moda. One is from their Hometown collection and one is from their Mama Said Sew collection.

        Thanks so much, Faith. Now I can add some of the text fabric to my quilts. I love your blog and all the wonderful quilting/sewing ideas and information you share.

    thanks for the templates. Some time ago I made a row of flying geese and was very disappointed how bad I was on not cutting of points, centering and sewing those in generell. So next time I’ll be prepared.

    Love them. You’ve inspired me. I want seasonal pillows for my couch. But I gotta get rid of this old worn out print one and get me a new (to me) solid leather. Ohh I’ve been waiting so long. Maybe soon!
    Thanks for sharing the inspiration.
