I had a ton of scraps left over from my Christmas quilt, so I made three Christmas pillow covers to match it and love the way they turned out.
The first one I made was just 2.5 inch blocks sewn together in strips. (Very simple project, btw!)
I made the next one in strips.
And for the last one, I made a string quilt block. I used this awesome tutorial, and I cannot wait to make an entire quilt from these squares.
The only thing I’ll do differently next time is that I will definitely make a border to go around the quilt block. It was super hard to attach a lining without one.
I installed invisible zippers on all three pillow covers using this (also awesome) tutorial.
And all three pillows again, from a slightly different angle.
