MAKING HST UNITS 
1. Take (1) Fabric G 5” x 5” square and (1) Fabric E 5” x 5” square, and place them RST. 
2. With a pencil, mark a diagonal line between opposite corners. 
3. Sew a scant 1/4" away from the pencil line on both sides. 
4. Cut on the line, separating the two halves; this creates (2) HST units.
5. Repeat the process above using the following fabric combinations to yield all the HST units 
you need for this pillow. Note: each pair of squares yields (2) HST units. If you are using 
directional fabric, pay attention to the direction of your diagonal line.
Make (4) Fabric F & A HST units.
Make (4) Fabric G & B HST units.
Make (4) Fabric G & D HST units.
Make (4) Fabric G & E HST units (including the one you made in Steps 1-4).
6. Trim all HST units to 4-1/2” square.
 
MAKING HST BLOCKS
1. Sew a 1-1/2” x 4-1/2” Fabric C rectangle to the right-hand side of a 
Fabric A-F HST unit.
2. Sew a 1-1/2” x 5-1/2” Fabric C rectangle to the bottom of the 
Fabric A-F HST unit.
3. Repeat Steps 1 & 2 to make the remaining (3) corner units.
3. Repeat Steps 1 & 2 to make the remaining (3) corner units.
4. Sew a Fabric G-B HST unit to a Fabric G-D HST unit to 
create a flying goose unit. Sew a 1-1/2” x 8-1/2” Fabric C 
rectangle to the top of this unit.
Make (4), paying attention to the direction of patterns.
 
PIECING THE PILLOW TOP
1. Sew the (4) Fabric G-E HST units to form a square as shown.
2. Piece the blocks in rows according to the Assembly Layout 
below, and join the rows to finish piecing the Pillow Top.
 
ASSEMBLY LAYOUT
 
QUILTING THE PILLOW TOP
This pillow is made much like a small quilt, so batting & backing will be added to the top.
1. Layer the Pillow Top, batting & Pillow Top Backing, with the batting in the middle.
2. Baste & quilt as desired.
3. Square up the Top
 
PREPARING THE PILLOW BACK
1. Fold each 19-1/2” x 24-1/2” Fabric A rectangle in half to form (2) 19-1/2” x 12-1/4” 
rectangles.
2. Sew along the folds with a 1/2” stitch line, then a 1” stitch line, for decorative finish.
3. Trim the Back pieces to match the width of the Pillow Top.
 
FINISHING THE PILLOW
1. Place the Pillow Top face down on your work surface.
2. Line up the Backing rectangles with the outer edges of 
the Pillow so that their folded edges overlap at the center 
of the pillow. They should be Right Side up.
3. Baste the Backing rectangles to the Pillow Top, Wrong 
Sides together, around all (4) edges.
4. Join your Fabric A strips end-to-end and use them to bind your pillow.
5. Insert the 18” square pillow form and relax!
