Joy

I am linking up today to Kyla's Too Cute Tuesday Linky Par-Tay.  I have been meaning to do this for two weeks, yet I seem to be quite behind lately.  I mentioned in an earlier post how much I despise our couches.  My husband bought them when he was single, and trust me, they scream bachelor (from the 90's) BUT they are in good shape and comfy.  So, we keep them.  My new goal is to make new pillows each month and hopefully not be as bothered by the couch.  Here is what I have done for December

 
This summer I joined the Mystery Block of the Month Club at Fat Quarter Shop and I also joined their Table Runner of the Month Club.  The quilt and the December Table runner are both made out of Kate Spain's 12 Days of Christmas line.  I decided to make the pillows out of the same fabrics and also a tree skirt (which has yet to be started. . . maybe next year)
The two larger pillows are very basic and I have a set on each couch.  The JOY pillow was adapted from this pillow pattern.  I did not have a large enough pillow form on hand, however I did have this smaller one.  So, I used this applique pattern and some charms to complete this pillow.  These pillows were all so quick and easy and I am very happy with the way they turned out.  I do have quite a bit of fabric leftover so I hope to make some more for next year. 
Please leave a comment if you stopped by so I can make sure to see what you linked up!
