Relax With Your Patchwork Travel Pillow

For Sewing Breaks And To Take On Quilting Retreats

Make your own neck pillow to relax after hours of joyful sewing. This quaint patchwork travel pillow is fun to make and take with on retreats, and also to relax at the end of a busy retreat. Comfortable while watching quilting videos, and classes, and in-betweens while taking a sewing break.


Sweet mini charm squares make up a colorful splash of fun prints. Choose your favorites to display in the patchwork. The top requires 40 x 2 1/2″ squares and will put a basket full of scraps to good use.

I can’t think of a nicer gift for someone who spends many enjoyable hours at the sewing machine! Co-ordinate colors, and include a theme related print such as birds amongst florals for bird lovers, butterflies, or use one or two of those goofy cat prints in the mix.

Make a couple of pillows, one to keep in the sewing room and one to match your quilting excursion accessories. Arrive at the retreat and everyone will want one! The pattern suggests the addition of a ribbon in order to attach the neck pillow to your travel tote, or hand luggage.

Add a final touch with a pretty fabric flower, instructions included in the pattern, or embellish with an applique, or anything you choose. The pillow is a finished size of  14 1/2″ x 10 1/2″, not too bulky for travel, yet just right for a little support when taking a break. The pattern is just one of the quilting projects found in a special edition of ‘Quilts You Can Make In A Day’ magazine, packed with 26 beautiful, hand selected quick-and-easy projects, is available for purchase.
