No? Not yet?
Oh well, with this Halloween inspired pillow I’m ready when it finally arrives.
The pattern for this pillow is from the wonderful Pillow Pop book and is called “Bunch of Crosses.” It uses 2.5″ squares to make the crosses and I decided to use two mini charm packs of the Comma collection by Zen Chic for Moda.
I didn’t have quite enough squares to make a the 20″ pillow that the pattern called for, so I just eliminated a horizontal and vertical row and transformed it into an 18″ pillow.
I used orange thread and quilted it with straight lines in both directions.
After I had stitched all the rows together, it struck me that these colors really read Halloween…and since we are not too far from that fun holiday, I decided to make this a Halloween pillow. I dragged out some of my stashed Ghastlie fabric (oh, how I love that stuff!) and crafted a pieced back.
