Dec ‘18 OMG

My December ‘18 One Monthly Goal is to make four pillow covers. I’m making two Christmas pillows for my friend, Kristen, and her son, Aidan, with some great Christmas fabric for these cat-loving friends. I really love the red text fabric that I will use to make the envelope backing with quotes like, “You had me at meow,” and “A cat can purr its way out of anything.” (mine definitely can!)

The other two pillows are the teal/turquoise whirls pillow shams that I wrote about in my 2018 Qtr 4 FAL Goals post. Melissa at So Shabby Quilting has finished the quilting, so I hope to finish them up soon in time to send off for Christmas. The pic below shows the teal/turquoise whirls before I added strips of grey to turn them into a “quilt top” for Melissa to quilt, and then I will cut the quilt into two pieces to make them into pillow shams.

    Hi Mary! I love that red fabric as it really pulls the red sweater or hats out in the main design fabric. LOVE! Of course I love your teal/turquoise twirls as they will look SO nice with their quilt. Happy Happy Sunday to you. ~smile~ Roseanne
