Fat Quarter Shop just released their free Lend and Borrow pattern! You can find the tutorial here. Here is my version of the block.
I used fabric from this line.
I added narrow borders to my block and free motion quilted it on the long arm.
Then I turned it into a pillow!
I just used a simple envelope back. I used the selvedge edges of this woven stripe so I didn’t even have to hem the edges. I bound the edge of the pillow just like I would a quilt.
I think it’s a fun pillow for summer.
Check out the Fat Quarter Shop site and blog for more details, the free pattern, and to see other versions of this block.
Have a great day!

I like how you used the selvage edge of the fabric for the envelope backing – anymore the selvages are really cute on some of the fabrics with sayings included. Binding the pillow edges is a great idea also! Thanks for sharing. HUGS… and stitches
Love it! Especially the two different neutrals. Just makes it so sparky!:)
Lovely pillow. Interesting using a binding, I never thought of it. I think it gives it a nice finished look! Thanks for sharing.
Looks nice, Katy! I am going to try binding a pillow the next time I make one. It adds a nice finishing touch!
