Savvy Seasons!

Okay, so maybe I have become a little obsessed with these fun swaps. I joined the Savvy Seasons Swap. You are supposed to make an item for your partner for whatever season they pick. My partner requested Christmas. She seems like a bright, modern girl, so I went with something a little funky. I loved this tutorial by Oh Fransson. It was fun to piece together, and I really did just use almost exclusively scraps for this pillow. I did make it smaller though. This pillow cover fits about an 18" pillow form. I free motion quilted over it with some fun variegated green thread. Free motion quilting still makes me tense up at first as I start, but I slowly relax as I go along and start to enjoy myself.

This is the back of the pillow. I found this fun Christmas shopping print by Alexander Henry at Joanns. You never know what you will find at Joann's!

In my kitchen towel kick I also made some little matching kitchen towels and included a couple of other little Christmas things for her. Hopefully, she likes it!


  1. I'm sure that will be loved! It is adorable!

  2. That is really a nice gift. If she doesn't like it, I sure do - LOL!

  3. Lucky her! That Alexander Henry fabric is to die for! I love it! Using the green thread to quilt the pillow was genius... it really brings the pillow together. Very nice!

  4. I LOVE it thanks so much! It really put me in the Christmas mode. Your free motion is gorgeous!!!!
