Brian's Snow Pillows

Here are some pillow that I made my SIL's boyfriend for Christmas.  He is very hard to buy for so I figured I'd make him something this year.

Here is the front:

Here is the back:

My hubby and I found this great snowmobile fabric when we were in Maine in June at Knight's on Route 1 in Cape Neddick, ME.  I used my Accuquilt Holiday Medley die (#55043) to make the trees, snowflakes and snow.  I appliqued around each item with coordinating thread to quilt and secure all the small pieces down.  They are big 18" pillows for his house in Vermont!  I know that he will appreciate all the work that went into them!

My pillows were also posted on Accuquilt's Facebook page on December 23, 2014!  Check it out HERE!

Christmas Table Runner

Here is a Christmas table runner that I made one of my hubby's co-worker's:

I followed the directions from THIS blog posting!

Last December, I went through my fabric stash and cut a 2-1/2" strip off of each of my Christmas fabrics and then cut them into squares.  This year, I found the started project and completed it.  I also quilted inside each rectangle with a spiral and I went around the outsides of them also.  I really liked how this came out!

Copper's Quilt

When I was watching my MIL's dog Copper last month, he loved to lay on Hershey's quilt.  Well Hershey was not having it.  So for Christmas, I made Copper his own quilt.  Here it is:

I made this using my Accuquilt GO! Fabric Cutter and Triangle in a Square - 4" Finished die (#55409).  I love how it came out!  It is rather small but Copper is a mini Chihuahua so he will have plenty of room to stretch out!
