Pillows Projects

Reindeer Pillow

I’ve been working on the next pillow for my last class of this year.  This little guy is made using Sweetwater’s Countdown to Christmas fabric & has a fun little stitchy appliqued reindeer.  This type of applique is so easy and I think it’s a great introduction to anyone interested in trying applique.

I sketched up the reindeer to look similiar to the reindeers in the fabric–I think he’s pretty darn cute.  I hope to finish up the pillow this week.  I think I’m going to stipple it–I might add a little bit of hand quilting–we’ll see how my week goes.

I’ll be glad to have this finished up–my poor hubster has really had to hold down the fort lately with magazine deadlines, book deadlines, & then my class projects.  I feel like I haven’t had much to share with you but since, September I have made two quilts, 8 pillows, & a set of placemats…it’s been a little bit crazy but I have almost reached the finish line!

  • I love the colors of this, and that reindeer is SO stinkin’ cute!! I like that the colors are more subdued and not the HII’MCHRISTMASCOLORED fabrics that tend to mark the season. 🙂

  • That reindeer is so cute!

  • A-DORABLE!!! That fabric is so stinking cute! Where did you get it?!

  • He looks really cute. Did you find that the reindeer raised up from the fabric by quilting around it and not over it? That is what happened to my mini penguin quilt: http://ickletomato.blogspot.com. So I thought it looked a bit wrong!

    • I didn’t have any problem with it but I use a very low loft batting which certainly makes a difference!

  • I think you have another winner on your hands. I love sweetwater fabrics. I’m thinking your going to have to whip up a second one. Because i’m sure your two sweet girly’s are both going to fall in love with this one.
