|Christmas Pennant Pillow|
|String Quilt Pillow|
I finally finished up some pillows to go along with the Christmas Quilt for our bed. Too bad it's January already! I still have a huge amount of fabric scraps from the Merry and Bright collection, but I think it's time to finally put this fabric away . . . at least until next fall.
The pennant pillow is made with some of my favorite scraps and rick rack. I quilted curved lines following the rick rack, and did the binding in stripes. I love it! Holly loves to help me arrange the pennants -- she helped arrange the pennants on most of the zippered bags I made for Christmas presents.
The string quilt pillow was fun, and I love how it looks. Instead of paper piecing, I just cut batting pieces to 10inches square and then did a quilt as you go method of piecing -- more on this later -- I took pictures as I went along. I finished this pillow with an invisible zipper (I always follow this tutorial from sewkatiedid.wordpress.com).
I'm entering the pennant pillow in a contest on Stitched in Color. I love Rachel's blog, and have been inspired by all of the other beautiful pillows that have been entered!
