This pattern is for a fun holiday pillow that you can use to add that festive feeling to your living room or even to give as a gift over the holidays. This pillow uses four paper pieced units to create a center block as well as colorful strips around the center block, much like a traditional log cabin quilt block. I love making holiday pillows, they're a fun and quick way to decorate! Let's get started, shall we? BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY paper piecing basic quilting SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 20" pillow
