Cricut Basics: Modern Quilted Pillow with Cricut Maker Rotary Blade

Modern Quilt Pillow with Cricut Maker Rotary Blade tutorial by Underground Crafter

This is the second post in my series about the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade. The Rotary Blade makes using your Cricut Maker for quilting, sewing, and other fabric crafts super easy. It can cut fabric very precisely and without wear and tear on you and your back and joints. In today’s post, I’ll be sharing a project for a Modern Quilt Pillow that I made with the Rotary Blade.

I’ve been doing much more sewing since I got my Cricut Maker, and the Rotary Blade is the main reason why! It’s one of the tools that can be used in the Maker’s Adaptive Tool System, and it allows you to use your Cricut to cut fabric without a stabilizer. You’ll also need the FabricGrip Cutting Mat. Both the FabricGrip Cutting Mat and the Rotary Blade are included in the box with your Maker,  so as soon as you take it out of the box, you’ll just need some fabric and you are ready to go!

I used to do a lot of strip quilting back in the day, but in my current apartment, I don’t have lots of space to set up a cutting table, or a large, unused surface that I can use for cutting. And, let’s be honest, my back is not as it once was, so the idea of bending over cutting fabric for hours is not really something that makes me excited! Today’s project is a Modern Quilt Pillow. It’s a simple project that doesn’t require a large amount of cutting, but with the Maker and the Rotary Blade, it definitely works up faster and with less back and wrist strain than cutting by hand.

I’m sharing a link to this project in Cricut Design Space. You can use my pillow design or create your own! (If you do create your own, be sure to add 1/2″ to each side of each piece for a 1/4″ seam allowance.) And, if you just want to try out the Rotary Blade without doing any math (which is fine by me), you can use my project or any one of the great sewing projects that are included with your Cricut Access Standard subscription.

I used a simple, geometric design and the “quilt-as-you-go” method to add some depth and softness to this pillow. Use colors that coordinate or contrast with your room for different looks. This pillow would add some brightness to your home decor. It also makes a great gift for a housewarming, wedding, or baby shower.

Instructions

Prepare Your Fabric

  • Prewash and press your fabric to remove wrinkles using your EasyPress 2 with EasyPress Mat, or an iron with ironing board.

Cut Your Fabric and Batting

Modern Quilt Pillow with Cricut Maker Rotary Blade tutorial by Underground Crafter | fabric on mat
  • Using your fabric scissor or rotary cutter and cutting mat, cut a 20” square of the fabric you will use to back the inside of your pillow. This will not be seen, so it can be made with orphaned quilt blocks, muslin, or scraps. Cut a 20” square of batting. Neither needs to be perfectly square because you will trim both pieces down to 18.5” later.

Sew Your Pillow

  • Start by sewing the 2 sets of 3 short rectangles into strips using a 1/4″ seam allowance.
  • Once you have 2 strips of short rectangles, set aside the 2 large rectangles (for the pillow back) and the 2 long, narrow strips (for the sides of the pillow front) and arrange your remaining fabric strips in the order you will sew them together.
Modern Quilt Pillow with Cricut Maker Rotary Blade tutorial by Underground Crafter | positioning strips
  • Create a “quilt sandwich” for the front of the pillow. The 20” square of fabric will go on the bottom, the 20” square of batting will go in the middle, and your first 2 strips of rectangles will go on the top layer. Align your rectangle strips with the top of your quilt sandwich with the first strip facing right side up and the second strip on top of it, facing right side down. Both strips should be centered relative to the sides of the quilt sandwich.

  • Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew the rectangles together along the long edge, working through all layers.

  • Finger press the rectangles flat. Place the next rectangle in your series face down over the last rectangle you sewed. Continue adding rectangles in this fashion.
  • One you have the main set of strips sewn, position the first of the long, narrow strips. It should be face down, perpendicular to the rest of your strips. Sew into position using a 1/4″ seam allowance. Position the second of the long, narrow strips face down on the opposite side of the pillow and sew into position.
  • Press or iron the front of the pillow with all the sewn strips using your EasyPress 2 with EasyPress Mat, or an iron with ironing board. Trim the front of the pillow to 18.5” square.

  • Press or iron an approximately 1/2″ strip down on the wrong side of the long edge of each of the larger rectangles for the pillow back with your EasyPress 2 with EasyPress Mat, or an iron with ironing board. Using  a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew down these strips to create a hem.
  • Create another sandwich. Place the pillow front right side up. Place the 2 hemmed rectangles over the pillow front, with right sides facing (wrong side up).

  • Sew a 1/4″ seam around the entire pillow case.

Book Review: Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore

Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore book review on Underground Crafter - book cover

Are you looking for an on-the-go sewing project? Do you want to expand your sewing skills? When you’re learning a new technique, do you like step-by-step instructions? Then, you’ll love the latest book from Carolina Moore! Check out today’s post for my review, along with a chance to win a copy of the book and a starter kit of supplies.

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links. A free review copy of Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore was provided to me by Nancy’s Notions. Although I accept free products for review, I do not accept additional compensation, nor do I guarantee a positive review. My reviews are based entirely on my honest opinions.

Book Review

Learn How to English Paper Piece: 10 Start-to-Finish English Paper Piecing Projects and the Techniques to Make Them! is the latest book by Carolina Moore. You may know Carolina as the blogger behind 30 Minute Crafts and Always Expect Moore, or as the co-author of Hot Glue Hacks and Crafts, which I reviewed here. I’m happy to say that I know Carolina in real life, and she’s a woman after my own heart. In addition to all of her creative talents, she’s also smart, assertive, and fun!

Now, that’s fascinating, you’re thinking, but what about the book? Let me tell you a bit about Learn How to English Paper Piece. It starts with an introduction to English paper piecing (also known as EPP), a hand-sewing technique to make shaped pieces for patchwork, applique, and quilting projects. As the name suggests, there is paper involved! The paper backing is removable but provides a structure so that sewists of all skill levels can make shapes like hexagons without learning complicated machine-sewing techniques.

Carolina’s introduction explains that EPP is portable, which makes it ideal for crafters like me who are always on-the-go. She also explains that you can make projects that combine multiple shapes, as long as the sides are the same length. This may seem obvious, but often times when you start a new technique, the “common sense” stuff isn’t all that obvious! The book then moves on to provide an overview of the tools you would use for EPP. Since the fabric needs to be basted to the paper, Carolina shares two basting methods. She also provides written instructions with photos to explain stitching methods for both hexagons and diamonds.

The book then moves on to the projects. I love that Carolina has included projects of different sizes and with different ratios of English paper piecing to machine sewing. Each project includes a list of supplies and written instructions with numerous progress pictures. There is also a large (generally full-page) photograph of each finished project shown in use with measurements. My favorite projects in the book are the Dream Catchers, which look like an amazing way to use up fabric scraps while getting near instant project gratification…

Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore book review on Underground Crafter - Dream Catchers

the Diamond Tote, which is just sooooo pretty…

Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore book review on Underground Crafter - Diamond Tote

and the Hexi Placemats, which would make a great gift.

Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore book review on Underground Crafter - Hexi Placemats

Other projects include a pillow, two pouches, coasters, a mason jar cozy, a pillowcase dress, and a quilt.

Learn How to English Paper Piece by Carolina Moore book review on Underground Crafter - project list

Although the book does have lots of photographs and helpful instructions, it isn’t there to teach you how to sew or how to use your sewing machine. All of the projects in the book are finished with machine sewing and it’s assumed that readers know the basics. The book is compact but it’s also affordably priced at $9.99. I reviewed a PDF version of the book, but it’s available as a softcover exclusively on Nancy’s Notions here.

I will mention that while the book makes it seem completely attainable to do your own English paper piecing projects, the idea of cutting out lots of precise little hexagons and diamonds is a bit daunting. Of course, if you have a Cricut or another cutting machine, you can use that to cut out each piece. But, you’ll be glad to know that Nancy’s Notions also sells a Learn How to English Paper Piece Starter Set that includes the book along with 400 pre-cut hexagons (in two different sizes), fabric glue for basting, scissors, starch, and thread.

I recommend Learn How to English Paper Piece: 10 Start-to-Finish English Paper Piecing Projects and the Techniques to Make Them! for any sewist that is looking to expand skills, find project inspiration, or sew while on-the-go.

Cricut Basics: Get To Know the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade (Part 1)

Get To Know the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade with Pillow Sneak Peek on Underground Crafter

I’m kicking off a series of posts about the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade, an awesome tool that makes combining sewing, quilting, and other fabric crafts with your Cricut very easy. If cutting fabric is one of your least favorite parts of sewing, if you have a tendency to make cutting errors, or if you’d like to try some sewing projects with unusual shapes and intricate cuts, then you’ll love the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade.

This post contains affiliate links. I may receive compensation (at no added cost to you) if you make a purchase using these links. This post is sponsored by Cricut, but all opinions and thoughts are my own.

One of my crafty New Year’s Resolutions is to sew more. I’ve mentioned a few times now that my Cricut Maker is one of my favorite crafty tools and that I’m particularly fond of its amazing ability to cut fabric without a stabilizer using the Rotary Blade and FabricGrip Cutting Mat. In today’s post, I’m going to share some more information about the Rotary Blade, along with a sneak peek of a sewing tutorial that I’ll be sharing on the blog soon. (Update: Here’s the link to the finished project!)

About the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade

When Cricut first announced the release of the Cricut Maker, the feature that instantly drew me in was the ability to cut fabric without a stabilizer. As you may know, I’m not the biggest fan of ironing, and I’m also not the biggest fan of bending over for hours to cut out pieces of fabric. It’s not all that easy to cut pieces of fabric that aren’t square or rectangular, either, especially when you have to cut lots and lots of them, which is why when I was quilting a lot I always made projects using strips or squares.

Enter the Rotary Blade. It’s one of many tools that are part of the Cricut Maker Adaptive Tool System. The Rotary Blade fits into Clamp “B,” and it can cut up to three layers of fabric at a time without a stabilizer. Besides cutting out squares and rectangles faster than I can (and certainly with less strain on my back), it can also cut out all the unusual shapes for appliques and curved quilts quickly and accurately.

Get To Know the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade with Pillow Sneak Peek on Underground Crafter | rotary blades with text overlay

The Rotary Blade, along with a FabricGrip Cutting Mat, are included with your Cricut Maker so there’s no extra expense and you can get started with sewing projects right away! There are quite a few sewing patterns and projects that are available for free with a Cricut Access Standard subscription, and there are over a hundred that you can purchase.

Get To Know the Cricut Maker Rotary Blade with Pillow Sneak Peek on Underground Crafter | Design Space screenshot

You can also make your own sewing projects, like I did, using the features Cricut Design Space — adding shapes that you’d like to cut and then editing the shapes to fit specific measurements of your existing quilting or sewing patterns. Cricut even sells fabric now, like this Riley Blake Designs Ocean Solids Baby Size kit.

By the way, if you plan to do a lot of fabric cutting with your Maker, you may want to get a Washable Fabric Pen. It doesn’t come with the Maker so you’ll need to purchase it separately. Many of the patterns that are in Design Space include marking lines to help you with placement, and the Washable Fabric Pen (as the name suggests) washes the marks off, so it’s perfect for using with fabric.

If you’ve been using a standard rotary cutter for your fabric, you know that over time, the blade will dull and need replacement. The same is true of the Cricut Rotary Blade, so there is a replacement kit for you to safely replace the blade. You’ll know when it’s time to replace your blade because you’ll start seeing uncut threads when the blade dulls.

Next week, I’ll be sharing the tutorial for a pillow pattern I designed with all the fabric cut using the Cricut MakerRotary Blade, and the FabricGrip Cutting Mat. Here’s a sneak peek! (Update: The Modern Quilt Pillow tutorial and cut files are now available here.)

Instructions

Prepare fabric

  • Print the Heart Softie pattern and cut out around dotted lines.
  • Iron your fabric.
  • Fold the fabric over and position with the pattern on top. Iron the fabric again on the folds (so that you can cut through 2 layers for each Heart Softie) and pin the pattern through the layers.

  • Cut out the pattern.
  • If you will be using safety eyes and craft nose, cut 3 small pieces of felt to use as backing (Shiny Happy World has a photo tutorial here).

Decorate facial features

  • Use paint to decorate face, using pattern as a guide. Wait for fabric paint to set as instructed on bottle.

Sew heart together

  • Position heart with facial features face down onto other heart.

Heart Softie free sewing pattern by Underground Crafter - sewing with Baby Lock Jubilant

  • Using your sewing machine or hand sewing needle, and a 1/2″ (1 cm) seam allowance, sew around the heart, leaving the bottom point and about 1” (2 cm) on each side of the bottom point unsewn. Since you will be stuffing the Softie, be sure to back stitch to make the seams more durable.
  • Trim the thread tails so they don’t snag on the stuffing. Turn the Softie right side out.
  • Stuff firmly with your chosen stuffing. See notes before the tutorial for options.
  • Once your Softie is full enough, sew the last seam closed by hand. Start with the thread knot on the inside of the Softie so it will be hidden. Then fold the raw edges towards the inside so the seam allowance will be similar to the rest of your Softie. Sew along the edge. Back stitch to finish and then draw the needle through the inside of the Softie. Trim the thread on the outer edge so the thread tail recedes into the inside.
