Stitched Pillow with Reverie by Shell Rummel

Hello friends! I'm sharing a Stitched Block Pillow made with the beautiful Reverie fabric 
designed by Shell Rummel for FreeSpirit Fabrics. Shell uses a very soft tranquil palette that creates a mood of peacefulness. I added lots of hand stitching inspired by Sashiko style stitching. Find Reverie fabric at your local quilt store now.

This pillow is great for beginner sewers, if you can sew a straight line you can make a pillow! See more block pillows here.
