I've been making things as long as I can remember, thanks to my Mom who is a great seamstress! My favorite has been quilting for 25 years now and now that my husband and I are empty nesters I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my expertise and creativity in this art. Pattern writing is a new outlet for me and I am enjoying sharing my creations. I especially love making patterns that are encouraging for beginner quilters - I try to make sure my directions are clear and well illustrated to take the frustration out of quilting and make it a joyful process!
Thanks so much for looking at my patterns!
Fun and festive, this pillow is great in Christmas fabrics, but you can use any fabric you like to make this easy, but impressive pillow. If you have a Lil' Twister or June Tailor Twist n Stitch ruler it makes it easier to cut, but I incude directions for using an ordinary ruler to make your squares as well.
I've also included some illustrations for the machine quilting (my quilting looks better, but I know you like to have an idea for how to quilt your finished items)
This would make a wonderful gift for a special occasion, or just a fun home decor piece for your own home. Use it to cover your existing pillow, or buy an 18 inch form at any craft store. It's fun to change your pillows with the seasons!
