Granny's Quilted Pillow

>> Wednesday, September 7, 2011

I guess a pillow cover doesn't really count as a Family Quilt. Except this one is handquilted and was made by my husband's Granny.

She made the biscuit quilt I wrote about here.

It is full of handstitches and made up of quite dated fabrics. I still have some of that brown flower print - and have a small roll of the other two flower prints.

I played with the idea of adding it to my Follow Your Bliss Joyful Girl, but I don't think it's the right spot for it.

Maybe that's part of what I like about this pillow - that I have some of the fabric to work with too.

We don't use it all the time. I think we got it from my husband's mother when she was redecorating at some point. It no longer fit in.

Do you think that will happen to the things we are making today?
That they will get traded or given away for something more fashionable?

I'm going to keep creating anyway!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Really love the pillow and the fabric/colors you used. Perfect for fall. Your hand stitching is really lovely.
