One more Lil’ Twister pillow. I used up the other section of my Lil’ Twister blocks for another pillow. This one is 18 inches and I made a complete pillow cover instead of a band.

his is made the same way as the one for the Lil Twister Band on a Pillow.

I added muslin on both sides to make a 19-inch block, then I added batting and backing before quilting it.

I usually use something thin on the back as it won’t be seen. I had an old bed skirt that had a cheesecloth-type fabric that went under the mattress and when I didn’t want it anymore I cut that part off and saved it for pillows.

When Builder Bob saw the pillows he asked what season they were for…..they didn’t look Halloweeny, Fall, or Christmas. I told him they were Modern Quilting……….

I used the envelope style backing and stitched around the block with a 1/2 inch seam.


I used the Lil’ Twister Template.
