Hexie Pillow - Sketchbook Version

Posted by Nicole Daksiewicz on

Hi friends, 

Today I am happy to share a new Hexie Pillow creation using a new line by Ruby Star Society called Sketchbook! This fabric line by Alexia Abegg features textures, background and geometric designs that look as though they came straight from a paintbrush, stencil or stamp.

You might have seen my hexie pillow from last week where I used a mini charm pack for my pillow front, you can find that blog post here

Mini charm packs are the perfect pairing for the Hexie Pillow - or if you have 2.5" square scraps left over from a quilt project, you can use those to create a coordinating pillow!

This pillow was created using this charm pack - a set of 42 - 2.5" squares of Sketchbook.

For the layout I decided on an all over pattern, mixing up all of the colors and patterns.

For my backing I used a colorful canvas print also by Alexia Abegg's Honey line.

This canvas print is called Honey Canvas Dahlia Granny Square - don't you think the colors are a perfect compliment to the Sketchbook line and the darker background of the pillow?

Added a bright red / orange zipper for a fun pop of color! You can find my zipper tutorial here

I have this pillow available in my shop if you are interested in scooping this one up. I have a few more fun ones in the work that I will be finishing soon - if there is ever a fabric line you would like to see just let me know!

If you would like to make one of your own you can grab the PDF pattern here or the printed version here

Thanks for stopping by today - happy sewing!
