I loved making this project with the PFAFF creative ambition 640. And check all the decorations on the tree that were created using many fancy stitches. I’ll show you all week how the PFAFF creative ambition 640 helped me to create this cushion. But before we begin, let’s go through the list of all the stuff you need. If you’re like me, you’ll probably be able to simply go through your fabric stash as the pieces are rather small. Now, when finding my fabrics, I struck gold with a fabric that already had several colored circles and another one that had a golden star. Both were just the perfect size for my block size (14’’). But do not fear, I do have all the instructions should you need to create your star and circles.

I struck gold in my fabric stash to make this project.

And, you can create the size you need! Choose between a decorative pillow or a wall hanging, you can even create several blocks for a festive throw or bed quilt. My instructions are based on the 14’’ block size used for my project. You can definitely modify the design by scaling the printing size of the designs to fit whichever size you want.



  • 2 fat quarters
    • 1 for the background of the block
    • 1 for the backing of the project for quilting
  • 8’’ x 10’’ of green fabric for the tree (you can also use different fabrics for each section)
  • 2½” x 2½” of brown fabric for the trunk
  • scraps of various colors for decorative balls
  • 2 pieces – 2’’ x 2’’ of light gold fabric for the top star
  • 2 pieces – 2’’ x 2’’ of dark gold fabric for the bottom star
  • 16’’ x 16’’ quilt batting
  • 14’’ x 14’’ wool batting (for trapunto)


  • Sulky rayon thread, gold color, for decorative stitches
  • Sulky rayon thread, silver, for background quilting
  • Sulky rayon thread, brown, to quilt the trunk
  • Water soluble thread (for trapunto)



  • iron
  • sewing machine
