BLOG REMIX 2 – Tumbler Block Pillow
We’re back for another season of blog remixes! We saw the great response to the remixed projects from last year and are continuing them for another year! The blog remixes will be throwing it back to one of our tutorials with new fabrics, notions, and tips and tricks to inspire you to make your next project. Whether you’ve seen this project before or it’s your first time, there’s a remix project for everyone. The third remix of our second season of blog remixes is the
Fab Five Ruler Pillow we did in 2015 using the Fab Five Ruler by Abbey Lane Quilts! These pillows are easy to whip up, look great when displayed and, even better, the pillow pattern comes free with the ruler!

We even had some awesome quilty friends make their version of the Fab Five Ruler Pillows! We love seeing the different fabrics they made their Fab Five Ruler Pillow Projects in and the tips they have to share.
Andy of A Bright Corner made her Fab Five Ruler Quilt using Kona Solids. She says, “Quilt was fun and fast to make (45″ x 66″).”
Jane of Quilt Jane (@quiltjane) made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow using fabrics from Jeni Baker for Art Gallery Fabrics. She says, “I would love to make a whole quilt using this ruler. I love scrappy quilts.”
Quilty staffer Kate made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow using Cool & Comfy Wool 10″ Stacker for the front and Akoma Sky Metallic Geo Grid Yardage SKU# 1976-03. She says, “I made my pillow case 17” large so that it would fit the 18” pillow snugly.”
Quilty staffer Lilly made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow using Betty’s Luncheonette by Violet Craft for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. She says, “I picked this fabric collection because it looked very retro and that’s the look I’m going for in my sewing space.”
Lissa of Lovingly Lissa (@lovinglylissa) made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow using scraps from her stash. She says, “I used two layers of wool batting to give the pillow extra “poofiness”
Michelle of From Bolt to Beauty (@frombolttobeauty) made her Fab Five Pillow using scraps from various collections by Alison Glass. She says, “This is the first pillow bound in the same way I’d bind a quilt. I think the thin gray frame here unifies the many colors of the pillow.”
Quilty staffer Nancy made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow using Home Grown by Nancy Halvorsen for Benartex Fabrics. She says, “Rather than sewing the pillow form into the pillow cover, I made an overlapping envelope back so the pillow form can be removed easily. I finished the edges of the back pieces with double 1″ hems and topstitched them. The overlap of the two back pieces is about 6″.”
Quilty staffer Susan made her Fab Five Ruler Quilt out of Guess How Much I Love You from Clothworks Fabrics. She says, ” It’s approximately 44″ x 44″. It’s the first quilt I’ve made since hand surgery 3 months ago and the Fab Five Ruler made it a quick and easy quilt to put together.”
Quilty staffer Teresa made her Fab Five Ruler Pillow and matching quilt using Water Wishes by Danielle Leone for Wilmington Prints. She says, “The Fab Five Ruler has so many possibilities. After I made the pillow I used the panel that came in the fat quarter bundle to make a small quilt top. I made a Fab Five Strip and then cut a strip out of the center lengthwise. I then sewed it back in off center from where it had been. I love the extra wonky look it gives. “
Wendy of Pieceful Thoughts (@piecefulwendy) made her Fab Five Pillow using Reef by Elizabeth Hartman for Robert Kaufman Fabrics. She says, “Using the Fab Five Ruler, I not only made this pillow, but two more projects from those fat eighths (which I hope to show at a later date on my blog).
