Cathedral Windows Pillows

I accidentally bought Christmas fabric.  It was an online purchase and having chosen one line of Kate Spain fabric, I spontaneously bought a second charm pack without looking at it very closely.  Candy canes and snowflakes would not have made the cut, had I only been paying attention.

Ray and I like origami so this folded fabric method of sewing was fun for me to learn.  I can see that there are a lot of different things one could do with the basic techniques.  It takes a fair amount of fabric and is time consuming but the finished product is great.  No batting is necessary as there are four or five layers when complete.
