Oh, Christmas tree! Sewn in bright and unexpected colors like red, pink and blue, these patchwork trees look delightful on a low-volume background of patchwork prints. This Christmas pillow sham fits an 18″ square pillow form, but if you become addicted to making these darling blocks, you can always sew more and make a coordinating holiday quilt.
Add a touch of whimsy to your living room decor with some Christmas pillow shams sewn from your red and black scraps of quilting cotton. These modern, scrappy pillow covers are perfect for beginning sewers with their easy envelope pillow backs. They fit 18″ or 20″ pillow forms, depending on how snug or loose you like them to look. The front panel can be quilted with straight lines or any free-motion pattern for a great, textured look.
Paper-pieced quilt blocks make excellent Christmas pillow shams. Because they may be more intricate to piece, it’s great to work out the details on a smaller canvas rather than a whole quilt. This festive reindeer pillow is stitched in holiday fabrics and even incorporates a text print with holiday names into the deer’s antlers. So clever!
