Happy 2024! Over the past two years, we have done a monthly QUILTY and STITCHY pattern series, and this year we will continue the tradition with a Pillow of the Month series! The pillows will be seasonal based on each month, beginner-friendly, and the perfect way to bring some homemade decor into your space!

I will show you how to do a basic pillow finish for the cross-stitch pieces, in today’s video tutorial. I also have some other fun finishing ideas for the upcoming month’s stitches, but will share more on that later!

I hope you enjoy following along with our Pillow of the Month series!
