Are you looking for a quick, fun, beginner-friendly quilted pillow or mini quilt pattern? You’ve come to the right place! I’m going to share with you about how I made the Explore Pillow/Wall Hanging Duo! The pattern comes in 3 sizes (pillow, baby, and throw!) and the pillow size of the pattern finishes at just under 20” square. The Explore quilt is a great project for quilters at any skill level!
Have you ever made a mini quilt and then not been able to decide if you want it to be a pillow or a wall hanging? I have the perfect solution! In this post I am going to walk you through exactly all the steps I took to make this mini quilt, and how I made it into BOTH a pillow cover AND a wall hanging – so it is officially the most versatile mini quilt I own.
Recently AccuQuilt has invited me into their influencer program in order to increase the precision and speed for cutting fabrics for my quilts. They sent me the Ready. Set. GO! which included the 8” GO! Qube and GO! Strip Cutter-2½” (2″ Finished), which are both incredible with So. Many. Possibilities!
I’ll be honest, I was a little intimidated at first! To help me take the dive into learning how to use the new machine, I invited my mom over to help (that’s what moms are for, right?!). My mom (@JaneJustSew) has had the AccuQuilt GO! Baby for a while so I knew she’d be super helpful, and as always, we had a ton of fun together. Now, I know not everyone has someone to ask for help, so I’m writing this post to share my learning experience with all of you!
