A Hip Holiday Patchwork Pillow { Tutorial & GIVEAWAY } : :

Hip Holiday Quilted Patchwork Pillow

Good morning! Today I'm sharing my most recent patchwork pillow makings, this time for a Quilted Patchwork Pillow project I designed for ThermoWeb using HeatnBond Fusible Fleece and Josephine Kimberling's holiday collection, Hip Holiday for Blend Fabrics!

Hip Holiday Fabrics

These fabrics are so cute!! This "Tree Shopping" print is my most favorite!

Hip Holiday Pillow Backing

A few weeks ago when I had shared my Chicopee Patchwork pillows, many of you especially over on my Facebook page, had asked for a tutorial. Remeber these?

Chicopee Patchwork Pillow - one more!

So.. I teamed up with ThermoWeb and Blend Fabrics to put together a tutorial to share as quickly as I could, along with a Giveaway right here for a sample of the HeatnBond High Loft Fusible Fleece I used to make these cozy, quilted pillows!

HeatnBond Fusible Fleece -- love it!

I hope you like this super quick & easy pillow project! It takes only eight 6" charm squares to make the pillow front, plus the backing and binding fabrics, and when you finish you'll have a snazzy, new pillow!

Hip Holiday Charms!

It felt good to have it done with plenty of time to spare. Now everything I have planned to work on is for me at at my leisure. Whew! Merry Christmas to you and yours!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Maureen, you are not alone in the scramble. I am finishing up a puff pillow blanket for one grandson and a Memory t-shirt quilt for another. I am almost out of time. My darn sewing machine has decided to be finicky with the FMQ on the t-shirt quilt. I should have just tied it. Too late now ; only a third of it to go for the finish. The thread keeps breaking or knotting up. I have changed thread, needles, bobbins, cleaned machine, sweet talked and cursed. Nothing will make it stop messing up. I will finish it, I will, I will. LOL. Happy Holidays to all and good luck.

    ReplyDelete

  155. I'm working on what I'm calling a pixel vomit quilt. Basically I'm piecing 2"squares together right now and will eventually surround them in negative space. I'm trying to purge my scraps.

  162. I've got last minute pressies for the kids to make - 2 pillowcases and a pirate map!

  163. Love your choice of fabrics. One does not have to celebrate Christmas to make gifts it seems. The holidays inspire travelling and that automatically means making gifts right?

  164. What a gorgeous pillow! I'm all but burnt out--too much to do, and I have to keep asking myself WHY do I do this to myself, year after year. I need to start earlier. Get more organized. Especially with my time. :o)

  167. I would love to win this heat and bond batting! I just finished my Christmas gifts - the last one was a table topper for my DIL. It felt good to get that finished. Now I'm hand embroidering something for a wall hanging. Thanks for the giveaway!

  174. Oh how I love this adorable pillow! I think the Christmas Tree Shopping fabric is my favorite too, or maybe it's the red fabric, or the green fabric or all of them. I'm not even close to the end of my to-do list!

  182. I just finished the binding on two "snap sack" mini quilts and gave them as gifts today. Tomorrow is baking day- M&M cookies, fudge, and maybe one more cookie. It's supposed to rain so that will make it perfect for baking!

  189. I've got a baby quilt in the works, but I've had to put it away until after Christmas so my cutting table can be used for gift wrapping. I'm looking forward to some quiet sewing time after Christmas. Love the pillow!
