Colorful Christmas Dresden Pillow : :

With this last Christmas pillow, phew, I am done! And I can happily say that Christmas-y goodness can be found in nearly every corner of our house this year.

Colorful Christmas Dresden Pillow

For this pillow I made a large colorful dresden using a few new fabrics, but it's actually made up mostly of the large scraps that were left from several projects I have finished and shared here these last few months.

When I look at it, my eyes wonder around each fabric piece that make up the circle and I think of all of them -- my bottled rainbow quilt blocks, my daughter's Little Red costume, the apron I made for my sister in law, the stockings I just finished, and scraps left from my other Christmas pillows.

I fussy cut the center medallion, that to me looks like a colorful, lovely snowflake and went with an aqua snowflake fabric to finish off the back.

I think the scalloped shape of the center mimics our other favorite holiday pillow quite nicely!

Tomorrow I'll be hosting a four day giveaway for some brand new gorgeous fabrics, sponsored by The Intrepid Thread! You can take a peek here at the bundle!

And with that, I want to wish everyone the Merriest of Christmas's and a wonderful holiday weekend!!!
