Pillow Collective :: Think Big Edition

I hope you are ready for a big dose of pillow inspiration! I love adding pillows to the spaces in my home, not only are they FAST, they are a great color addition too!

Pillow Collective : Think Big Edition - AmysCreativeSide.com #ThinkBigBook #Pillow Collective

All week long a few friends will be sharing their pillows made from my new book, Think Big. I’ll have links for you each day, and plan to share images from the book too.

While writing Think Big I decided I wanted to include as many options as possible so that you could easily make the quilt that you want to make. Sorting out how to share those options was a bit of a challenge, but in the end I came up with some handy charts to give you the freedom to create.


The beauty of 18″ blocks, is that you don’t need a lot, even if you want to make a large bed quilt! The chart above is included in the book, as an example of what’s included with each project – I’m really excited to see the variety of quilts pop up in the coming years!


For the Pillow Collective, I remade the Film Strip block for a pillow. The large center space was perfect for fussy cutting this beautiful Anna Maria Horner print I had in my stash.

I don’t often take the opportunity to make my patterns again, but I think I should – it was so fun to re-imagine, and select fabrics all over again.

    Thanks for the giveaway, its immense! I have yet to make a cushion or pillow since taking up quilting. I have just started quilting, after piling up flimsies for the past year. A cushion is on my 2015 bucket list. There, its in writing!
