Made by my great-grandmother
Found this pillow cover made from a quilt square in my linen closet. It was made by my great-grandmother who was a prolific quilter.
The colors aren't great and God bless her, she used what she had and composition wasn't her strongest forte.
I gave the pillow cover to my quilter friend Dori and hopefully she'll be able to use it for inspiration and perhaps even a pattern for a copy. Imagine it with coordinating print fabrics. It's got potential, I tell ya!
Take a look at the hand stitched piecing.
I feel lucky to be able to see and understand my great grandmother's handiwork and blessed to have a willing recipient as a friend who will appreciate it more than me.
Proving I am NOT a hoarder,
