Pillow Swap Goodness

 I made this for super-talented Holly for our Cincinnati Modern Quilt Guild Pillow Swap last month.  I was sick most of April and May, so I didn't get to finish it for her until last week!

The instructions were to make a 19" pillow cover for a 20" pillow form. We were free to create whatever we wanted, so I made Holly a star and threw in a scrappy border and some strips from a jelly roll to frame it. I made an envelope back from some leftover white and black floral and green polka dot fabrics.I wasn't loving it until I quilted it - the quilting adds a lot of depth and movement which makes me uber happy!

I hope you like it, Holly!


  1. Love this! My guild is doing mug rugs - I may have to hijack this design!

  2. Yay!! I love it Andie. I can't wait to lay my sleepy head on it and take a snooze....but it just might be too pretty for that.

  3. Oh, that's so FUN! What a sweet swap item. <3 it.
