A Christmas Cushion!

I should not be starting anything new - but I did and I finished it too.  I wanted to make a Christmas Cushion!  I love Deer so much.  They are such elegant animals.  I thought two on a cushion would look good.
 I used Heat n Bond underneath the deer and machine blanket stitched them down to the background fabric.  I then made my quilt sandwich and shadow quilted around the deer.  My pillow form is 20".  I cut the background fabric to 19 inches when quilted.  Once I bind around the edges the measurement is 18 inches finished.  I love a plump well stuffed pillow.  This works really well.
 We had a really spectacular sunset on Saturday night.  I could not resist snapping a few pictures.
 It was so beautiful.


  1. Your Christmas cushion is beautiful! Love the fabrics

  2. What a great pillow and perfect for this time of year!
