Description

This is the December Pillow for Pillow Pop- the original is called "Fair Feathered Friends" by John Q. Adams

Mine is done using 12 Days of Christmas by Kate Spain.

I'm still quilting it but thought I'd at least get it posted since  ( ahem) it was supposed to be up by Dec. 1 :).

Quilting is done- I had a lot of fun coming up with different patterns for the blocks and did a lot of outline quilting on the poinsettas and Christmas ornaments especially.

Update 12/3 - Finis!

Pillow back is red polka dot flannel- lined envelope style 

 I posted my pattern "notes" over on the December thread in Pillow POP.  I really like the pattern and will very likely make another one.

Sniff sniff- Pillow Pop Sew Along has been such fun- Thanks Wendy and Valerie for coming up with it!  Consolation- we're doing the Little Quilts Sew Along next year- another year of sewing frenzy and fun- wheeee!

Update- The scraps on the cutting mat begged to be used so I made a little companion pillow to go with the big one- pieced front, hidden zipper back.
