Prairie Circle Pillow

Created By:

Sam Hunter of Hunter's Design Studio

Skill Level: Intermediate

The flying geese in this block are made using simple, three-dimensional prairie points made of folded fabric and inserted into a seam. There are no tricky points to make or match!

The pattern on this pillow includes simple paper-piecing techniques and easy pre-cut instructions for minimum fabric waste. 

This pattern includes instructions for a 17"x17" pillow (from a 15"x15" block). You can also use the block for other things like table runners or wall hangings.

I like the concept, but the directions are "sloppy." Nowhere in the supply list does it mention the felt or the batting (how much?). Also, I would never use a high loft batting in a placemat, or a table runner, as I think that it would be too unstable for a glass. The next time I make these, I will cut out the batting (I use flannel) and spray baste it to the wrong side of the Dresden plate before I put the Dresden plate on the felt to cut out. I have not yet washed the finished placemat, and am hoping that the single layer of felt does not curl up, or become distorted after washing/drying.

I made this today but your cutting directions need to be changed. You only need 4 of color 1 and color 3 4.5 squares for the triangles. Also the inner border, you only need 2 cuts as WOF is long enough to cut each in half to fit the sides.
