It’s time for another Block of the Month pattern! This year I am featuring a new series of free bench pillow patterns! Each month I will offer a new bench pillow pattern free for one month only. For the current free bench pillow pattern, GO HERE!
Start with one bench pillow form. Then change out a new cover for that pillow form for each season or holiday! The Dance in the Rain pillow cover is perfect for April!
Dance in the Rain Bench Pillow Pattern
The Dance in the Rain 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! For the current free bench pillow pattern, GO HERE!
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.
Dance in the Rain
Create the Dance in the Rain 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.
So how does this work?
Starting January 1, 2020, a new bench pillow pattern will be offered for one month each with the last being offered on December 1, 2020. Each Bench Pillow Pattern will be available free to all Sitcom Readers for one month, and after that, will be available in my shop for a small fee. For the current free bench pillow pattern, GO HERE!
