Pillow Front Applique

April 20th, 2011

The kind of tan fabric was a  bright orange 1970’s linen. The bright pink appliques were red. Bleach.

I had made a pillow out of the tan but never liked it.

so I took it apart and appliqued the old pillow front to the new blue linen front.

And did lots of cut away and top stitching.

This is something that I have been working on in between making bolsters for a client. Have you ever made bolsters? Boy are they fun! Kinda fun, it was fun to figure out how to do it and then do it. When sewing it helps (as with many things) to take your time, break it down into smaller steps. And if you feel your self rushing to finish, stop.
