Sew Solid Castle Pillow & A Giveaway

The Castle Pillow is the new FREE quilt pattern in the Sew Solid series by the Fat Quarter Shop.

And honestly, isn’t it just the cutest cushion ever!    I have to admit I’ve got a bit of a thing for anything Princessy, not that I go around wearing crowns or tiara’s (well not everyday anyway!).  I just can’t resist anything remotely Princess themed for little people and this cushion was no exception.

Rather than using solids I opted to sew this version with small polka dot prints.   The bird print from Wee Wander was a last minute decision I’m really happy with!

The pattern from The Fat Quarter Shop is super simple to follow.  There are diagrams for each step and a video tutorial to watch as well.  I had my 20″ x 20″ cushion top done in one evening and then quilted it with straight lines 3/4″ apart before adding the back and binding the next day.     For more details just follow the links below…

  1. The Queen since my 11 year old grandson would find it too infantile. Hmmmm,if I could do a variation and make it mine crafty somehow then it would work.

  2. I love the polka-dots! I think I’d have to go with the king…but might have to add a knight somehow…

  3. I would pick the queen version. Your pillow is so cute. I love the fabrics you used and your fussy cut princess in the tower! Thanks to you and the FQS for the fun giveaway.

  4. I’d like that Queen pillow, Peta. And this pillow of yours with that adorable little princess in the doorway–just too precious 🙂 Thanks for the giveaway!

  5. If I had to choose I guess it would be a qeeen – but I think more likely I would make it in gender neutral colors that were more castle-like. My kids love all things castle and knight.

  6. I love your fabric choices for this pillow. It is very pretty. I would choose the queen pillow for my youngest granddaughter and my two great nieces.

  7. My choice would be the Queen pillow kit. These are just adorable and I prefer yours in print fabrics. Love, love, love!

  8. It would have to be the queen pillow pattern, my daughter loves all things Disney princess and she would love this pillow.

  9. I would pick the King as blue is my favourite colour . Both are very cute x

  10. My choice would be the Queen pattern . The granddaughter would love one I am sure as she has asked for another quilt . I admire your selection of fabric and the fuzzy cut for the window. Thank you for a chance to win .

  11. Ah I have two young grandchildren a girl and a boy so I’ll be making both as there is no way to not make one for each

  12. I love the fabric choices you used. The Wee Wander fabric really makes this pillow pop!
    I would choose the queen sized pattern. 🙂

  13. Hi there Peta,
    I’d choose the King version!
    I had a look at your new pattern Australia and think I might give it a try as it looks do-able in all scrappiness!
    Quilty Huggs,

  14. Both are wonderful, but I’d choose the Queen version for my adorable niece who loves to pretend she is a princess!

  15. i would choose queen since my grandaughter is only four. Her bedroom is decorated in pink and purple already.

  16. I’m currently working on a Quilt using “Princess Life” Fabrics. I’m making it for my daughters best friend. Her birthday is in April. I would totally use this Pillow pattern in Queen size, to top off the perfect Princess bedding gift!! 😀
