Gifty Galore 2011: Merry Pillow

Who’s merry? I’m merry! Why you ask? Because I have a Merry Pillow that’s why! I LOVE Christmas, it’s my very favorite time of year. I also LOVE Nancy Halvorsen’s book Jingle All The Way which is where I got the pattern for this adorable pillow. It was really fun to make, I’m a little obsessed with pinwheels and welcomed the chance to make a few and get more practice. A few pinwheels, a few squares, a quick applique and ta-da a pillow is born! If you have a cute Christmas collection (I mainly used Merry Minis but threw in a few other odds and ends) and if you want to showcase several prints, this is a great way to do it. I may not be able to put it out this year for Christmas though because I’m a little worried that my two year old son might rip the buttons off…wish me luck!

    This is really cute – have a granddaughter who wants to quilt. This might be a good project for her.
