Betty, our President, even came to the class a second time so that she could get a Christmas pillow made. One of the gals who attended last year has made almost 20 pillow covers! This makes me so happy. Here's the gang from the recent class with their pillow tops in progress:
I always build the project along with my students so that I can demonstrate each step of the pattern. This time I used a charm pack of Briar Rose by Heather Ross for Windham Fabrics. It's so cheerful! The blanket stitch around the fused centre circle is a nice accent.
I substituted straight borders of the adorable hexie bee print instead of making flying geese. It's now all quilted to Pellon fusible fleece and ready for a pillow back.
I'll stuff a pillow form in there and this will be my donation to a local charity auction to raise money for schools in Vietnam.
