The things I love the most about working with old fabrics are the imperfections, the blemishes, the wear and tear. It’s, frankly, an honor to take something that has lived so much and turn it into a new vision.
The quilt square is an antique that I added decorative stitching to. It’s sometimes called Boro or Sashiko, or slow stitching, or visible mending. It could even be considered quilting. It’s a process I thoroughly enjoy.
The front and back of the pillow are both old European homespun grain sacks.
Measures roughly 10″ x 12″.
