Did you know that our Forever Bound quilt blocks can also be made into pillows and wall hangings? Sometimes it’s easier than making the entire quilt to do one block at a time. We did our Happy Home and Bridal Couple blocks as wall hangings, and the Bustling Beehive and Family Album blocks as pillows.
The Family Album pillow is a bench size at 16″ x 24″, featuring prints from Art Gallery. Patchwork borders, quilted pillow top, and ribbon ties in the back complete the look.
The Bridal Couple wall hanging would be perfect as a wedding or anniversary gift, and could also be made into a pillow. The subway tile border adds a modern color tie-in and a classic finish to the design.
The Bustling Beehive pillow just had to have Honey House fabric for the background. The gradient-colored beehive is done with English paper piecing, and everything is bordered with a basic checkerboard pattern. Three big buttons close the pillow in the back.
The Happy Home wall hanging is done in traditional colors and fabrics. The diamond in a square border gives it an interesting twist. Click here for our diamond in a square block tutorial.
As you can see, each block stands alone quite well. It would be easy to customize any of these to match your own taste and color preferences.
You can find all of the individual block patterns here, or buy them all together in our Forever Bound booklet. We are working on updating all of our individual block patterns to include the instructions to turn any block into any one of these four projects. A big thanks to Rania from our Creative Team for doing the applique work on the Happy Home and Bustling Beehive!
