I hadn't seen the finished pillow till now--it's gorgeous and must have been hard to part with! I am impressed that you didn't have trouble with the invisible thread. I have yet to try one that my machine hasn't rejected...leave it to Aurifil though!


Your pillow is gorgeous!! Thanks for sharing it with us! I would love to try the Aurifil invisible thread, you make it look so easy to sew with!


What a great pillow. I love that is is cheery and bright but not over the top Christmassy. I just bought my first airfield clear a couple of weeks ago and love it. I would love to try their coloured thread.


Your work is gorgeous! I'd love the chance to enter your giveaway. The Aurifil invisible thread looks like it's easy to sew with.

I would love to try the invisible thread, but I"d never ever turn down Aurifil!


Love the pillow and the fabrics you chose! You did a great job. I have never tried Aurifil. Looks like it is easy to sew with.


I have not yet sampled Aurifil thread and thank you for the chance to win some. Plus, I've never used invisible thread. Please enter me into the giveaway for any of the prize sets.


I didn't even realize that you appliquéd the paper pieced part of the pillow to a background. I may need to give this pattern a try. I need some new pillows at my house!

I'd love to try the invisible thread since I've not tried Aurifil's invisible thread yet, but I'd be happy to win any of them.


Great tutorial and a lovely pillow. Thanks! Would love to try any of the Aurifil thread - thanks for the chance.


I would love to try the invisible thread!
Thanks for the chance :D


Wow Stephanie -- this pillow is awesome -- I love it! I love that you quilted it with gray thread too -- I would have never thought to use that color. Alex is so generous with his fab thread too!


Great post! I loved seeing how you made this pillow. I've never used that invisible thread before. I've tried other brands but don't like them. I'd love to give this one a try.

Another great tutorial! I would love to try Aurifil's invisible thread!


Such a beautiful pillow! I bet it makes a great statement wherever you put it. I really love the backing fabric and that adorable trim. Looks like a lot of work!


I'd love to give that invisible thread a try. I've always hated invisible thread because it felt like fishing line, and swore off it. But this new stuff seems like a vast improvement. Thanks for the chance. And I love your pillow -- Lucky Cindy!

I didn't know Aurifil made invisible thread! Thanks for the positive review and a chance to win. I will be on the lookout for it!

Christine Hollaway

Loved the pillow process. Sure is cute and I love those fabrics. I would be most happy if chosen to win either of the Aurifil threads you are giving away.


I have emailed questions to Alex in the past--he is so helpful! Your pillow is gorgeous! Love that background fabric! And I would love some Aurifil! I've got some 50 wt white in my machine and it's lasting forever! :)

The pillow is beautiful, Stephanie! Great job! Thanks for sharing your process. I have never used Aurifil thread by would love to try some. Either type would be fine with me. Thanks!


You are so good at directions!! I, like many other comments, haven't tried Aurifil thread. I don't even want to attempt invisible thread yet, so I would prefer the color if Mr. Random Generator likes me :)
I hope you enjoyed the show last night!


Your pillow is beautiful!! I would love any of the Aurifill thread!! Thanks for this awesome giveaway!!


This is a fabulous post, and all the photos show your point wonderfully, no need to apologize for the number of them. I didn't even realize your pillow had a background fabric, I assumed it was all EPP. Cindy is one lucky Iowa girl!

Now, for the thread, I love me some Aurifil and I'm a little green right now over your winnings, but I'll get over it. Since I know your Janome likes the invisible, I'll choose that giveaway and cross my fingers hard--my machine has never liked any kind of invisible thread and I gave up trying brands. But I want to try the Aurifil now that you have proven it works well!

Enjoy the concert...


Beautiful pillow and Thank you for the wonderful detailed post.
Would like to thank Alex Veronelli for sharing it on Google +
I would like to enter the giveaway for the thread.
Thank you again for sharing.

What a beautiful Pillow and tutorial! Thank you for the chance to try the aurifil thread, hopefully my Janome will like it too!


Great tutorial Stephanie! You must really have to force yourself to stop and take pictures. I always say I'm going to document progress on a project and I get a starting picture and a finished picture because I get too involved in the process to stop. I'm glad to hear you like the invisible thread, I haven't tried any in years. Does it feel soft to the touch like regular thread?
