Hip to be Square : a workshop

Back in May, I shared my Hip to be Square pillow along with the free tutorial on how to use layer cake squares to make one like mine. 

It was a fun project to make, and it was a good way to use up some left over layer cake squares.

I was contacted by Nancy, a member of Glendale(California) quilt guild asking if they'd be allowed to share the pattern / teach a workshop to the group, in a guild zoom call. Of course they could and I've been so pleased to see so many fun variations of this project appear on Instagram.

Here are a few pictures which have been shared on Instagram by the Glendale Quilt Guild.

It's always fun to see how a quilt (or pillow) will look in other fabrics and colours.

If you've made a Hip to be Square project, I'd love to see it. Please drop me an email or tag me on Instagram

  1. SEW generous of you to share your tutorial with the Guild and fun projects came out of their workshop!!

  2. Sew many gorgeous projects made with your lovely tutorial for Square in a Square...

  3. They look great... I have that quilt marked to do... one day

  4. How flattering that the quilters wanted to make your quilt/pillow! The design is certainly attractive, and a great use of layer cakes. Though I never buy precuts, this is a good design for scrappy or yardage too.


Thank you for your comment. I truly appreciate the time you've taken to leave me a message. I will attempt to answer comments via email.
