Chevron Christmas Pillow
I wanted to sew something Christmasey for my sister this year, something she could enjoy in her cute house. Knowing she liked Aneela’s Cherry Christmas line, I snapped up a charm pack and started cutting. I did have to add a few gray scraps to make the pattern work how I envisioned it.
It seems the Utah gray clouds have descended, thick and heavy, making photos difficult. I was operating with a deadline, though, so this is as good as it gets!
The pillow is made almost entirely of half square triangles, with a few solid white squares here and there. The squares finish at 1 and 5/8 inches across.
I quilted only on the white in lines 1/4 inch apart. I like the way it adds detail and movement to the pillow and makes the colors stand out. I finished the quilt with a simple white envelope back and bound it in a red polka dot print.
I’m hoping she enjoys it. The pillow measures 20 inches square, the same as this pillow I made for her birthday. I’m toying with making a second one with rest of the charm pack (I only used half of it!)
I have loved sewing some holiday themed gifts this year. This weekend I also sent my Vintage Holiday quilt off to a new home. It’s fun to give them early so they can be enjoyed during December.
