Description

this is a quilted patchwork pillow with a pattern called lone-star. it is one of the most difficult patchwork patterns but i love the effect it gives, when finished.

it is made out of 3 different christmas prints on cotton and an additional white linen frame. the backside is made out of the darkest of the 3 prints.

the quilting is done, as allways on a layer of fibre fill with embroidery thread in dark green

    This is absolutely gorgeous! You have undoubtedly inherited some of your mother’s sewing talent. My grandfather used to make home decor similar to this pillow, so this really caught my eye. Beautiful work!

    Really special. I love the fabric combo and really admire the time this must have taken.

    It is GORGEOUS! You are so productive lately!

    I can see all the details of the quilting and you must have put a lot of work in it! And hours… It also looks very very comfy.
