This is a beautiful handmade 18x18" blue and cream decorative throw pillow. It is my modern design based off the traditional "vintage star" quilt block. After sewing the pieces I hand painted a simple geometric design with a darker blue fabric paint over the "quilt top." I then hand quilted the pillow top in cream thread. The back is blue with darker blue painterly stripes. All the painted lines throughout the pillow are purposefully impressionistic and textural. The closure is an invisible zipper.
I have spent many many hours on this pillow! I have a passion for combining craft and tradition with art- an age-old pattern with a modern and simple aesthetic. I love the craft and skill and exactness of the sewn lines combined with the painterly, textural “perfectly imperfect” lines of the hand painting. This pillow is truly an heirloom work of art and craft.
Care: Please keep out of direct sunlight. Please spot clean as needed. If necessary, machine wash on delicate and lay flat to dry. Iron on low. After washing, quilts develop a slight “puckering” or wrinkling. This characteristic is embraced, desired and part of the “quilt look.” This will happen to this pillow after washing and add to its handmade charm.
Pillow cover is 100% cotton. Pillow insert is poly fiber. All fabrics have been prewashed.
