What a privilege I have had to work on something so special as this antique quilt! A client of mine asked if I could pull this off, of course I said yes! The workmanship is incredible all the stitches are even the silhouette when I held it up against the light was so unexpected I had to take a picture and show my client, she was not aware of it and was very happy to have not left it behind... To give the pillows a modern we added the industrial zippers, 2 white, 1 black and 1 navy all with silver teeth. I am very happy with the outcome as is my client.
This is not the first time I have had to make pillows from a precious item, a few years ago I made some pillows out of the train of a wedding gown, please go to the pictures page to see images.
I love my work!!!
