Log Cabin Quilt Pattern - Black and White Pillow

Pin It
Have a VERY Happy and Blessed Holiday
From our house to YOU !
Merry Christmas

MY GIFT TO YOU ! 
Our Master Bedroom has been an on GOING project. I needed hand quilt for group and here's the pattern for Black and White Log Cabin Pillows with Red Edging.


log cabin quilt pattern made into a throw pillow.

I saw a binding/edging on Pinterest (MINE) and decided to do it.
 I'll probably not do it again. 
But, it does look GREAT, but I hand stitch down and it took a bit of time.

Stuff the pillow and quick stitch the one side closed.

As with a quilt, cover the raw edges and hand stitch down.
this will take a bit, the pillow is hard to hold and stitch. But....worth it !

This will be your SEWING LINE

Move your ruler to the right and draw a line ½” 
from the first line

This again will be your SEWING LINE.
