Ho Ho Ho Merry Christmas!

I was so excited to see the pattern and tutorial for this pillow Julie shared on her blog The Crafty Quilter.  I had drawn my sister Raydine's name for Christmas and I knew that this would be the perfect gift for her.  I love the fabric that Julie used for her pillow here.  I have the same fabric but have been using mine for a row by row quilt, it is not complete so I did not want to use my Fig Tree Farmhouse fabric and not have what I needed to finish my row by row quilt.

I made the pillow with some of my Little Ruby fat quarters.

I had a great time making this and wish I had time to make another.

It is a little hard to see but I used some old white ric rac as my trim.

I made an envelope back and binding for the edge as Julie suggested.  Thank you Julie for sharing this great tutorial.
