Free Pattern: Christmas Joy Pillow

While Sandy was visiting, we went to the Red Rooster Quilt Store in Dublin, Ohio.  They have a great selection of 2017 Christmas fabrics in stock!

Jingle Toss by Maywood Studio caught my eye because it has a colorful mix of Christmas words and graphics.  I bought 2 fat quarters, a few coordinating fabrics and designed a pillow cover.  Here is the result!

I designed the pillow cover to fit a 16 x 16 inch pillow form.  It’s the perfect size for my couch…not to big and not too small!

I used three pairs of ties at the top of the pillow to finish the closure.  To make these ties, I used extra wide, double fold bias tape.  I think the red bias tape ties in nicely (oops…pun intended!) with the red “JOY”.  Here is a closer look at the ties, they are knotted at the ends for extra texture.

If you are a beginning quilter, this step by step pattern can guide you through this easy weekend project.

I will also post this pattern on the FaveQuilts website.  If you haven’t visited the FaveQuilts website, be sure to take a look!  You will find hundreds of FREE quilt patterns and amazing inspiration.  FaveQuilts hosts a wide variety of quilting tutorials, eBooks, techniques and videos for quilters of all skill levels.  Stop by and take a look at all the seasonal quilt patterns they offer and did I mention they are FREE?

I hope this pillow brings you (or someone you love) Christmas JOY for many years to come!
