A Christmas pillow project

In January I started sewing with the Across the Pond Sew-Along.  Around the same time I started sewing a quilt with the Sisters' Ten Block of The Month project.  Over the past several months both of these sew-alongs have taken the back seat to the Patchwork, Please! Zakka sew-along.  One of the projects I had put aside was the Topiary Tree Pillow, designed by Amy of eamylove.  I'm so happy to say I've finally finished it!
 It's been awhile since I've sewn a pillow, and quite honestly, I've never been very pleased with my end product.  The design and instructions for this one, though, had great results!  I used a lovely fabric collection by Moda called "Espirit de Noel."
 One of the best features of this pillow is the hidden zipper on the pillow back.  I'm sure this will be my "go to" pattern for pillow backs!
 It is easy to get the pillow form in and out.  Thank you, Amy, for such a great pattern!!

  1. Oh, my goodness...I am sew proud! Your pillow is just awesome, and I love the fabrics you've used! It really looks like a dusting of magical snow on the topmost boughs of the tree, too! I think I have tears in my eyes...
