Or Finish the Top Into a Table or Wall Quilt!
Little gift boxes dance across the surface of this charming Christmas throw pillow. The charcoal background makes all the colors in the little gifts pop.
While a mini charm pack of 2 1/2″ squares was used for this project, you can also use leftovers from your stash. Mixing and matching colors to make your own special version will be lots of fun.
Vertical matchstick quilting is a beautiful finishing touch. Or go ahead and quilt yours however you want.
Instructions are provided by the designer, Vanessa Goertzen from Lella Boutique, for a pillow cover that fits an 18″ by 18″ pillow form (the pillow form is intentionally a little bigger for a nice, full pillow). However, you can easily finish the top of the pillow cover into a mini quilt for your wall or table.
Learn more about the pillow cover here. The prints used by the designer are available here while supplies last.
Larger versions of the charming gift boxes are available as quilts. The “Gift Swap” quilt uses 5″ charm squares and measures 54.5″ x 65.25″. See more examples of this quilt here.
The “Nice List” quilt is made from 10″ layer cake squares and finishes at 76.5″ x 81.5″. Learn more about the quilt here.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
