A friend recently asked for a Christmas patchwork pillow. She leans towards more modern and bright Christmas fabrics - think red and aqua and pink and green. I immediately thought of the "Read Between the Lines" patchwork pillow by Kelly Lautenbach in the book, "Pretty in Patchwork: Holidays." I also had the perfect fabrics to work with...
Just look at all those gorgeous colors! Are these not the perfect stash builders or what? I pulled the reds, pinks, aquas, and light greens from these two collections for this project and the result was this:
As you can see, I didn't stray too far from the original. I paired the fabrics with linen and some red accent buttons.
Is it just me, or do those prints in the Shirt & Tie collection look like little snowflakes? They do when paired with "Ho Ho Ho" anyway.
I am really happy with how this project turned out and hope my friend is as well. I'm also really excited to have the Palette and Shirt & Tie fabrics in my collection so I can use them in many more projects to come.
If you'd like to make your own "Read Between the Lines Pillow," the pattern is available for free here. I also recommend the book as well! Available here.
