Gazillions of Gathers Pillow
Another family gift exchange pillow! About a week ago, I posted a photo of my first gift exchange pillow. This second pillow is quite different, but also lovely. This pattern from ‘Fabric by Fabric One-Yard Wonders’ was a big success. The directions recommend a lightweight fabric, but I used quilting weight and it worked perfectly. I happened to have this striped/floral fabric in my stash at home - the stripes really helped to keep my smocking even. Rather than using chalk to draw evenly spaced lines, I just followed the lines on the pattern!
