December Ottoman Cover



Came home from work and I remembered that I have to change the Ottoman cover since it still has an Autumn theme.
I had some leftover Christmas blocks I had cut out from another project so I put them together to make this small quilt for the ottoman. I added some prairie points since I love them so much . Quilted it quickly with a stripple stitch and added some gold bows for flair.
Now i have to think of one for January. Of course suggestions are always welcome.

Oooh! Pretty.
For January I'd use snowdrop and crocus fabrics.

Betsy the Ottoman cover what a fantastic idea, it looks great, your previous post on your Christmas gear, wow what you have made is very nice.

Betsy, love the ottoman idea. You could consider snowpeople for January. Or just shades of blue and silver to represent the chill of the month.

How clever to have a seasonal ottoman cover. I'd hate to put my feet on it. :o)

That is too cute! Maybe snowflakes for January.

The christmas ottoman cover is so pretty. I love the prairie-points too! How do you sew them though? Can't see how it's done from the photo. I'm guessing there is no binding....?

Aren't you clever. I love the ottoman cover. Something snowy for January or maybe New Year's theme. Or depending on your inclination - inaugural theme!

Love the cover - I even have an ottoman it could live on! And I love your I Believe quilt - I have almost all the blocks done, but still have to put it all together. I really like the colors/fabrics you used.

You have such great decorations. I love the idea of an ottoman cover. I love the prairie points on it.

Oooo, I bought a similar but very old ottoman at a garage sale recently for $5. I hadn't thought of doing a patchwork cover for it. How cute. Your cover is lovely.
