When I saw the quilted pillow cover Merry and Bright by Amy Sinibaldi of Nana Company, I loved it and decided to make two, one for my sister and one for my mother. I rushed to have them done by Thanksgiving so I could give them as pre-Christmas gifts.
The patchwork squares are 2 x 2” with a finished pillow form size of 12 x 16”. The script is hand embroidered. Both have an envelope back.
The fabric is from the “English Tea” collection, a 10” stack I bought from Connecting Threads, with the exception of one square in each of a a cute vintage reproduction Santa fabric from Joann’s. It’s discontinued and I only have a few Santa’s left for fussy cutting.
Who would think straight pins could make you so happy? 💙💚❤️💛
For my mother’s I added some buttons.
On Anne’s I planned to use a pom-pom trim until….
…she sent me this picture of their newest family member; kitten Theo with his pom-pom.
So I picture this cat demolishing the pillow and decided to go with Plan B, a discrete crochet trim. I like it!
And so does Theo!
May all your days be bright! ~Abbie 🌟
