Crocheted Quilted Pillow Cover Pattern

Sharing is caring!

The Crocheted Quilted Pillow Cover Pattern comes about because I love the quilt look, but I don’t like sewing. I fondly remember my grandma always had a quilt set up in her living room. I would watch her add thousands of hand stitches to her fabrics, creating a beautiful piece of artwork.

Quilting has really kicked up in popularity over the last few years, and I love seeing what talented artists create. I often consider getting into the hobby, but let’s be honest, my yarn takes up all my craft space.

So I crocheted my version of a quilted pillow in modern tones and colors. And who knows, maybe this crochet quilted pillow will inspire a crochet quilted blanket. What do you think?

And here is a little update on our puppy Luna. She is so cheeky and wants to play all the time. If we ignore her she tends to do something to get our attention. Notice here she stole the yarn from my photoshoot. Such a silly puppy.

Crocheted Quilted Pillow Cover Pattern Notes:

  • This pattern is worked in single crochet stitches in rows for the front panel. Burlap fabric will be used for the back panel. Alternatively, it can be crocheted as a solid color panel. The front and the back panels will be slip stitched together once completed. 
  • There is no need to chain 1 at the beginning of each row, simply turn and start the next row.

Colors are written as:
(A) – Silver, (B) – Ash, (C) – Kanai, (D )- Swan, (E) – Crème Brule, (F) – Mint

  • Since there is a wrong side and a right side to the front pillow panel, I used a combination of intarsia and carrying yarn across the back for the color work. Experiment and see what works best for you.
