Reindeer Grove Pillow

I have been having a little fun and getting in the Christmas spirit with my sewing lately. I am continuing to sew along with the Threadbias group, Pretty in Patchwork Holiday Sew A Long and this month we were challenged to make the Reindeer Grove Pillow. In the book, the pillow is designed as a window seat pillow and measures a very long 50″…but since I don’t have a window seat, I decided to modify the pattern and make a 20″ pillow instead.

This is a really easy pattern and utilizes wonky piecing methods…so it is quick and fun to make.

Here is the front:

I used some scraps of Christmas fabric and natural Essex linen for the trees and background…and chose a cute green dot for the binding.

ReindeerGrovePillow.Side0001

For the back, I made another little tree block and pieced the top portion of the pillow, added a hidden zipper and used another big piece of the linen for the bottom half.

This pillow will coordinate nicely with the Christmas quilt I made last year…and add a little bit of festivity to the living room!

    Oh I just love your Christmas pillow! It’s very festive and pretty. The Christmas quilt you made is gorgeous and the pillow and quilt go together quite well. You really are getting into the Christmas spirit, Wendy, that’s fantastic!

    Do you know what your next project is?
