Happy Saturday! I've got a Bella Blvd Fabric Project to share with you today. I love switching out my pillow covers seasonally. With fall right around the corner, I whipped up this sweet pumpkin quilted pillow cover using leftover scraps from a Halloween quilt I’m piecing! Once the quilt is finished, I will have a coordinating set to adorn the living room couch!
To created the quilted pillow cover, I pieced and quilted the pumpkin using a design from Lori Holt’s Farm Girl Vintage Book and Halloween themed fabrics from Bella Blvd’s Halloween Magic and Too Cute Too Spook fabric collections. The block design in the book has instructions for both the 12” block and 6” block. I used the 12” block and added 2” borders all the way around for a 16” pillow cover. I quilted the cover and then created a zippered pillow cover using one of the prints from the block for the backing.
For more information on how I sew my zippered pillow covers, check out the Bella Blvd blog post HERE.
In addition to the fun Bella Blvd fabric prints in the pillow cover, I also incorporated a print from the Military Max collection for the leaf and a print from the Puppy Park collection for the stem. One of the orange prints in the pumpkin is from the Snapshots Collection. I love mixing and matching the different Bella Blvd fabric collections when sewing up scrappy projects!
