Patchwork Forest Pillows

I'm making lots of last minute gifts. Do you all do this, too? I think I have everything I need as far as gifts go and then I see something a friend is sewing or I see a cute project on Instagram and I want to sew all the Christmas things I can.
These pillows are made using Amy Smart's fun tutorial for her Modern Christmas Tree block. You can see lots of fun projects if you check out  #holidaypatchworkforest on Instagram.
I wish I would have made a bigger border around these trees so they would not disappear into the sides or bottom of the pillow.
I ordered a new brand of pillow form on Amazon. They are made by Acanva and are down alternative pillows. They are so soft and squishy. No more Joann's pillow forms for me.
I'm hoping to keep making trees and be able to show you a finished patchwork forest Quilt next year.
Now I need to get back to sewing because I've also fallen hard for the #uglysweaterblock quilt along. Stay tuned for a pillow using the sweater blocks soon.
