JuLy XmaS IteM

I made this before I left Aus...
Once again it's the 25th of the month.
A pillow is my July contribution to the " Get Ready for Xmas" project. Narelle hosts this encouraging group of MeRRy ELveS so drop by HERE to see what the other elves are doing....

Isn't this beautiful fabric for a pillow backing.
I have owned this "Aussie Christmas" fabric for some time ... and it seemed THE perfect use for it!
I quilted it with Christmas trees in the green and blue sections and then shadowed the "fishing" Santas and some of the fish.  It's a 14in pillow that will sit proudly on my lounge this Christmas.
If you want to join in this group... you still have time to get a few items made for December... just contact Narelle......and remember...
Ready.... Set.... SEW !

Very cute fabric. I can't believe it's the 25th already. I love the way you have used the narrow red strip between the blocks. It looks great.

Very clever of you to use that fabric is such a novel way. Christmas by the water, very Australian. Hope you are having a great trip.
