Gather Up Pillow – Free Pattern Download

on Sep 17, 2009 in Sewing | 19 comments

The Gather Up Pillow (12″ x 16″) is a cute little project I designed for Brewer Quilting & Sewing Supply (a distributor that carries the Pink Chalk Studio pattern line). They were the first to pick me up, an event I still do back flips over!

I work really well with deadlines and fixed requirements. The deadline was Spring Quilt Market and the assignment was creating a project to showcase the gorgeous Dupioni Silk they wholesale.

This is a quick project to whip up and works equally fabulous with quilting cottons. You could even skip the gathering and just piece the front. And what about mixing wool, silk, cotton, and vintage finds! I love, love, love the envelope back. Instant gratification.

OK, so why did it take me so long to share this? I’m trying to figure that out myself. I think I had plans to make these up in a million different combos before sharing. In fact, I’m thinking about that right now. But you know what? That just isn’t going to happen. I’m asking you to go forth and create, post them to the Pink Chalk Studio Flickr group and then I’ll share your beautiful work.

Download the Gather Up Pillow PDF here. If you’re an independent retail fabric shop you can print these patterns, kit them, teach a class, or give them away to your customers. Please do not distribute the pattern online (linking to my download and using my pictures is absolutely A-OK!). If you want to make the pillows and sell them that’s fine too. Please give a nod to Pink Chalk Studio for the design if you list them online.

Happy Sewing! xo Kathy
