Bloomin Quilt-As-You-Go Pillow in Island Batiks!

This post may contain affiliate links. Thank you for your support!


May's challenge for Island Batik Ambassadors is a pillow.  I made a quilt-as-you-go Bloomin' pillow.


You will find the Bloomin' QAYG Pillow Tutorial over here.  The backing is a simple envelope enclosure in a light blue Basic Foundation.  I enjoyed the process very much and will likely use it again with scraps.  Having a longarm machine makes it nearly impossible for me to make a large quilt in the QAYG method, but I can see making pillows, placemats, or table runners in this manner.


As an Island Batik Ambassador, I am provided fabric for projects.  This fabric is from a layer cake of Island Batik Bursting Blooms from my stash.

Looks good! No sewing pieces on the sewing machine would make that go pretty fast. Now for your next trick, you just need to learn how to do a zipper. Or even better and invisible zipper!

I agree us longarmers have a hard time doing any other kind of quilting!!!! Your pillow turned out great.

Oh, how gorgeous is this??? I've had this Bloomin' Pillow in mind for a while to make, and seeing yours makes me want to sew one up today! It's perfect with your colorful range of batiks, Myra!
