I’m excited to share my Sunny Side Up pattern with you today! You may recognize the quilt from last winter, the full-size quilt was featured in the Nov/Dec 2013 issue of Quilty Magazine. I wanted to be able to share it here with you, in case you need a little sunshine in your life. The PDF pattern includes instructions for full-size and baby size quilts as well as quilted pillow instructions (for a 24″ pillow form).
I made two fun pillows for my bed. It always seems like a treat to add a new pillow or two on the bed, it’s fun to see how a simple project like this can really change up a room. I love the colors in the new Umbrella Prints collection: Flowers. Seemed fitting to use them paired with one of my favorite basics, Robert Kaufman Yarn Dyed Essex in Indigo. I call for a 24″ pillow form in the pattern, but I’ve found that the cheaper the pillow forms, the less stuffing they have. I used some old 26″ pillow forms from Target in these two pillows. So you might want to experiment with different size pillow forms so you can pick your perfect fullness. And invisible zippers, always love how they make a pillow look so professional.
The fun part, too, is that even though I show my quilt and pillows using 2 fabric choices, I think it would be amazing scrappy. Keeping the background fabric the same would make whichever fabrics you pick really shine. I hope to try it out with a the baby quilt!
You can find the pattern in my shop. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
