Christmas Jumble Quilt - Modern Christmas Quilt - Throw Quilt

I decided if I was going to get a Christmas Quilt done this year, the only way to be sure of it, was to get it done early.  I signed up for my first craft fair a while back.  It's a Christmas Fair in the Bellevue, WA area and I figured I should try to have at least one Christmas Quilt there (although it's listed here in my Etsy Quilt Shop, and if the Christmas Quilt sells before the fair, I certainly won't complain.)

It essentially uses the same pattern I've been using for my Harry Potter quilts (Gryffindor Quilt here, Hufflepuff Quilt here, and all four Hogwarts Houses here), but with three colors to work with instead of just two house colors.  With these quilts, I try to work in different visual textures, so if you look closely, there's some homespun plaid, tone-on-tone houndstooth, polka dots, swirls, stripes, and even some metallic gold.

It's a really fast pattern to sew up, and I love the results, so I'll be getting the pattern written up soon.

No-Sew "Braided" Fleece Pillow

This tutorial for a No-Sew Braided Edge Fleece Pillow is long overdue.  My tutorials for doing a "faux" braided edge on single and double thick fleece blankets are my two most popular blog posts ever.  I've gotten quite a few questions over the years about whether or not this method works for pillows.  It most certainly does and I've teamed up with Fairfield World to bring you the tutorial.  (I was provided with product and compensated for this this post, but all ideas and opinions are my own)

The best part is that there is no sewing involved and you get this fun braided look on the edge instead of the uncomfortable knots that so many no-sew fleece projects have.

All you need is a 16-in Poly-fil Soft Touch Pillow Insert (or other desired size) and 1/2 yard of two colors of coordinating fleece.

You can get my full tutorial and step-by-step photos on the Fairfield World blog here.
