I am totally loving this new book by Sherri Falls called Holiday Wishes! The patterns are so inspiring and they make you want to sew! I choose the gingham star block from her book and made some much needed throw pillows for my family room.
I always write about only using 20″ pillows in my home. However, my family loves Euro pillows in the family room. The old ones were headed to the trash and I was so thrilled to make some new ones!
I bought these 24″ square Euro pillows. They were a little too full so I made a small opening in the pillow and took out some stuffing.
I had purchased this Fruta y Flor fabric by Free Spirit and have been waiting to use it in my family room!! I am so in love with it!
I followed the pattern exactly and then added a border so the pillow top would be 24″ square. I can’t wait to make an entire quilt with these blocks!! I’m so in love!!!!!
I used Spray n Bond to baste my pillow fronts – it makes quilting so easy!
I love how they turned out – and yes they are pretty big!!
