I hope everyone in the States had a wonderful Thanksgiving yesterday; our turkey was yummy and these Christmas pillows went home with my daughter….among other quilted things she saw and loved….I’ll be making another bag for my laptop now.
A special thanks to Jill Findley from Jillily Studios – the designer of this pillow pattern, Pauline from Quilt n Queen the hostess for Holiday Lane and Madame Samm from Sew We Quilt who comes up with amazing ideas and giveaways.
Jill’s pattern was so much fun to work with and I decided to make 2 small pillows instead of the large one. I did my free motion applique on my 15-91 Singer, originally I did some white swirls on the black background…..hoping to make it look like it was snowing but…..it didn’t look good so I got out my handy seam ripper and took out the stitching and then restitched it with black. Thanks goodness I had only done one pillow!
I like to make pillows that can be changed out so I made pillow forms (I love using old sheets for that) and then put zippers in the back of my pillows.
As the pillows were disappearing out the door my daughter sweetly hinted about new pillow covers being made for after the Holidays…….
