Hola! It’s Fran from Cotton and Joy back with the fourth and final pattern of the holiday pillows series! If you missed the first three, you can find them here, here, and here .
I’ve loved sharing these quick and fun projects with you all over the last year! The fourth and last pillow in this series is a Patriotic inspired scrappy pillow. The romantic in me can’t help but love Valentine’s and adding little touches of Valentine’s inspired decor to my home so it doesn’t look so sad after all the Christmas decorations come down. And it’s perfect to use up some of those scraps we all have in our sewing rooms!
For quilting I decided to do my go-to quilting - straight line quilting! I used the walking foot on my Janome 9450 and quilted lines one inch apart. I marked my quilting lines with my trust hera marker and then got to quilting
For this whole series, I have been loving the look of binding on pillow covers. For this one, I used one of red for the binding to complete the red, white, and blue look.
One of the things I love about this classic Sawtooth star design is how easily it can be brought into other seasons with a change in fabrics! Below is a mockup of the same design, with different colors - isn’t it so fun?
I hope you enjoyed this project and don’t forget to come back for more projects!
