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.
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!
