The Little Ghost Who Was A Quilt Ghost Pillow Tutorial Update~
Last year I wrote a ghost pillow tutorial for the BERNINA We All Sew blog and then discovered the adorable book, "The Little Ghost Who Was a Quilt" by Riel Nason. This year I decided my nephew needs the book, a matching pillow and quilt.
I went through my stash for blues, creams and whites and got to work cutting 2.5" squares for the pillow and 5" squares for the quilt. I used a single fabric for the back of the ghost pillow last time, but this time I decided to do patchwork on both sides. You can find the full tutorial for the ghost pillow here. For my quilt I'm doing 12 rows of 12 5" squares.
I wanted to update the face for the ghost to more closely match the book. I went with a little smile which I think turned out pretty cute! I am still working on the quilt but I plan to add a face to that as well. If you'd like the updated faces you can click here to download the pdf for the pillow and quilt version.
I prefer turned-edge applique, but for folks not interested in that I highly recommend HotFix Adhesive for raw edge applique. It is super easy to use and the only raw-edge adhesive I'll bother with!
