Redwork Pillows

100_2168a

I have two pillows to share!

From left to right, the Pleasant Dreams pillow top is fun and easy to do using pre-cut jelly roll strips sewn log-cabin style around a rectangle of white linen.

Think vintage linen napkins that need recycling.   

The motif is one from my Redwork Christmas pattern collection.  But anything could be embroidered or appliqued. 

Next, another example of what can be done with the cozy up patchwork pillow just by changing the colors and theme, and again using a variety of 5" charm squares. 

This time around, I left off the border strips and it fits a 15" pillow form perfectly.  (With the addition of 2-1/2" jelly-roll strips the pillow will fit a 20" form.)

The wreath pattern is an old one I recreated from an 1800's Ingall's motif.  I added the sentiment, but the wreath can also be done without it.  This one and other floral wreaths are available as iron-on transfer patterns from PatternBee; look in the Redwork category.
