Candied Snowflake Pillow

Like so many of you, I was saddened to hear that Quilter's Newsletter was going out of print at the end of this year. Thankfully, I was able to get one project published in their special Christmas edition which comes out this month: my Candied Snowflake Pillow.

I love taking traditional blocks and updating them with more modern fabric choices. The design of this pillow is based on the Texas Treasure block, first published in the 1930's. Bright candy colors and a black and white dotty background give this pillow a mid-century vibe. It's a cheerful take on Christmas sewing that can stick around for a while after the tree comes down.

Look for the pattern in "Best Christmas Quilts from Quilter's Newsletter," in shops now through mid-October.


  1. This is so lovely, Heidi. Your fabric choices and placement are so on point! Beautiful.

  2. Do tell. Where did you buy the retro pyrex fabric????

    1. That's from the Picnic collection by Melody Miller for Cotton + Steel -- such a great print!

  3. I love your candied snowflake cushion Heidi. The fabrics are so pretty and the block is a nice take on traditional blocks. It is a shame about the Quilter's Newsletter.

  4. What a beautiful pillow! Your scrappy fabrics are beautiful in this block design!

  5. Oh my! Love this pillow and your fabric choices...well done!

  6. Wow ! Great Candied Snowflake Pillow!!!Have the kids start on one side of the room and try and jump to the other side... saying each letter name as they jump. For older kids you can have them say the letter sounds too or a word that starts with each letter while they jump.For more information visit visit this page.Thanks!
