Canada Day Bench Pillow

I made this Canada Day Bench Pillow to celebrate Canada Day this year because Canada Day events are cancelled and itโ€™s safer to stay home to celebrate.

O Canada Bench Pillow made by Daydreams of Quilts using a Kimberbell pattern.

I made the pillow using a Kimberbell pattern. This pattern came out a few years ago but Studio 39 Fabrics has some available here.

The pattern uses a variety of techniques so I created a sew along video series on my YouTube channel.

Free Video Series on YouTube

There are several techniques used to create this pillow so I created a sew along video series of five videos. I have gathered them all together for you in this playlist.

3D pinwheels are a fun playful element. I added snaps to mine so they can be removed for washing.

I varied from the pattern for the back of my pillow by creating a zipper back closure.

Zipper back closure for the pillow back. I show how to do this in video five.

I hope you get a chance to make this pillow if you celebrate Canada Day! Stay home and stay safe this year! ๐Ÿ™‚
