New Sew Along: Winter Cardinal Bench Pillow Pattern!

Happy New Year!  It’s time for another Block of the Month pattern!  I want to start the new year off with a bang and start a new series of free bench pillow patterns!  Each month I will offer a new bench pillow pattern free for one month only.

Start with one bench pillow form. Then change out a new cover for that pillow form for each season or holiday! The Winter Cardinal pillow cover is perfect for January!

Winter Cardinal Bench Pillow Pattern

The Winter Cardinal bench pillow consists of two pieced blocks and a center applique block.  The pattern contains instructions for the bench pillow cover and two different versions of quilts using the pieced blocks.  Also included are full sized templates and finishing instructions!  This 12 page pattern is available FREE only until February 1, 2020!

Applique the center block using your favorite technique.   Simple embroidery stitches make up the rest of the design.  The pattern includes instructions and suggestions for both the applique and embroidery.

Winter Cardinal

Create the Winter Cardinal Bench Pillow Cover and give yourself some practice on applique.  This month, I’m using a new technique utilizing washable glue stick.  It is surprisingly simple!  You can find my applique tutorial HERE.

The finished Pillow Cover measures approximately 38″ x 16″. This is the first block of my bench pillow series!  Winter Cardinal will add a touch of color to your January decor!  Download your copy now.  Available free only until February 1, 2020!
