House Pillow

I made this house pillow for my grandson for Christmas.

I used the house pattern from the article "Home for Christmas" by Shelly Burge, page 42 in Quilt it for Christmas / Quilter's Newsletter Magazine 2001.

The trees are from Collaborative Quilting  by Freddy Moran and Gwen Marston.
The pillow form is square and filled with feathers, from Ikea.

Quilting the pillow cover top. I used wool batting which makes a lovely quilted texture.

The reverse of the pillow. I used a nice cuddly heavyweight brushed cotton.
