Hi there! Lindsey here, from the Fort Worth Fabric Studio blog!   Today I am going to show you how to make this fun Halloween Pillow!
This pillow was inspired by the “granny square” block.  I love the granny square so much, I thought it would be fun to make it into a pillow!
So let’s get started!
SUPPLIES:
  • 16″ x 16″ Pillow Form
  • Scraps of orange, black and white fabric
  • 1/4 yard of border fabric
  • 1/2 yard of backing fabric
**All seams 1/4″
Step 1: Cut out your pieces:
  • 9 – 3 5/8″ Orange Squares
  • 4 – 3 5/8″ Black Squares
  • 2 12 – 3 5/8″ White Squares
  • – 2 1/4″ x 13″ Border Strips
  • 2 – 2 1/4″ x 17″ Border Strips
Step 2: Layout your squares as pictured in graphic 2.
Step 3: Sew your squares together in rows as pictured in graphic 3.  Then press them.

Step 4: Sew together your rows, lining up the middle squares and pinning to line up your squares. (graphic 4)
Step 5: Press your block, then using a rotary cutter and ruler trim off excess white.  Line up your rule 1/4″ from the intersections as pictured in graphic 5.  Once trimmed your block should look like graphic 6.
