Free Project: Candy Plus Pillow


We would love to share another design with you, a simple plus sign pillow called Candy Plus. Candy Plus is a 20" pillow design with a plus sign surrounded by scrappy squares that is beginner-friendly. The surrounding squares can be from a charm pack, scraps, or other precut fabrics.

Use your favorite method of finishing the pillow, such as a zipper closure, buttons, or an envelope backing as Cheryl did. You could also finish the pattern into a mini quilt or wall hanging.

This version of the pillow was made using Kaffe Fassett shot cotton in Blue Jean and various white, cream, and gray solids and low-volume prints. The batting used was Warm & White by the Warm Company and Aurifil thread was used in the piecing and quilting.
