Free Sister Sampler Project: Ataraxy Envelope Pillows

Feb 12, 2016

Looking for some EXTRA Sister Sampler blocks in your life?  Well, you're in luck!  If you can't get enough of Sister Blocks (making blocks in pairs) -or- are curious to try some out before you embark on an entire sampler, there is a FREE project download available at the Sister Sampler Quilts website.

The envelope pillow set, Ataraxy and Ataraxy Inverse, are based on the block concept for the second sampler in the book, the Vice Versa Sampler.  In those blocks, we make the traditional block and then invert the colors in the second block.  The color goes to the background and background shades come to the foreground.  Fun!
You can try out a vice versa inverse block set and turn them into these fun pillows.  Actually, you can make ANY set of Sister Blocks from the book in the 12" size and turn them into these pillows.  You add a small border to make the 14" pillow envelopes.  See the pillow pattern for details.
I had fun making this set in such bright and picnic-y colors.  Then I used small 1/2" crosshatch quilting to make the design really pop.  Please share with us if you end up making these!  #sistersamplerquilts
