The Pillow Top Will be Lovely as a Table Topper, Too!
This clever remake of the Sister’s Choice quilt block results in a charming pillow that looks like a wrapped package. You’ll love adding this to your holiday decor and giving it as gifts for any occasion. Simply change the fabrics to suit.
The designer, Venus de Hilo, has generously included instructions for 6 sizes, including the oblong boudoir pillow. She also includes a lot of tips for making pillows from her pattern.
According to the designer, and we agree:
“Gift Wrap” is super-easy and quick to sew. It’s such versatile design: it looks great in bright florals, would be stunning in solids (how ’bout silk, or linen?), and even works with novelty prints.”
If pillows aren’t your thing, consider finishing off a pillow top for use as a table topper. The 24″ x 24″ square version is perfect for this.
Or, use the 12″ x 16″ size for place mats. The following photo of pillow coverings waiting for pillows shows how beautiful they would be.

For place mats or a table topper, complete the tops, quilt and add a binding. Or sew on the backing, face down to the quilted top, around the outside edges leaving a space to turn it. You may then want to top stitch around the outside edges.

The pattern includes instructions for pillow from 12″ x 16″ up to 24″ x 24″.

We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
