I have one late Christmas gift I am finishing up. I started it last week in this post, and I am almost finished it. It is a 32 in. x 16 in. cushion.
The front is almost done, I have sewn all the squares, added the center white Kona cotton center and started quilting using a dragonfly template. The quilting is changing color as it progresses – white –> pale pink –> pink.
I have finished the back – I have added an additional fabric from Heather Mulder Peterson from Anka Treasures (the teal/aqua fabric).
I still have the quilting to finish, sew the sides together and add the invisible zip. I am hoping it’s all done by Friday.
One of the Christmas gifts on my list is a child’s pillow. I am excited as I am using one of my bundle’s for this one – ” The Simple Life” Bundle by Tasha Noel for Riley Blake + the pink polka dot fabric from Moda’s “Oh Deer” by MoMo.
The pillow will be a 16″x 32″.
The fabric is all cut – 2 1/2 ” squares. Now, on to piecing it all together.
I plan on adding the name of the recipient down the middle of the pillow, to make it a one of a kind pillow.
