The front was surged together from several smaller pieces. Gunta Stölzl’s textile designs came to mind when I was making this pillow– at least that is what attracted me to the fabric when looking through all of Barb’s textiles while I was in Spokane. The back of the pillow is a nubby linen with an exposed mint green zipper and sky blue leather loop. You can see that Barb is in the middle of designing some raised beds for her back yard (which I am excited to see because Barb is an excellent mosaic artist and I am looking forward to seeing what she comes up with) and it adds a nice contrast to these pictures.
Today I dropped off 7 new pillows at Hallworth for an exhibition that I am part of. It is for the Legends of La Cienega Event this week. The exhibit is Friday and Saturday and below is the blurb about it from the website. Come check out my pillows in person!
