Christmas Star Pillow

This was a quick pillow I made at Christmas for my brother's fiancee. A simple wonky star but with holly freemotion-quilted into the white.




I used the same striped back and tie design as in my Crane Star Pillow pattern. I outlined the star and ties with a red embroidered running stitch, and finished it off with scrappy binding.




I loved how it turned out and it was difficult to give it away! She loved it and I think my brother loved it even more :o)


Enjoy your afternoon tea & quilted crafts :o)

  7. I love the quilting! A great Christmassy touch, but subtle enough that they could easily use the cushion all year round.
