This pillow is so special! I tediously hand-quilted the top and I LOVE the way is looks! I found the hand sewn piecework at a vintage thrift shop, reinforced some of the stitching with my machine and then took to the rest with tread, hand, and needle :)

The pieced patchwork top was hand-stitched onto layers of light colored thick fleece and a plain poly/cotton square of the same size. Then I layered 2 more squares of the same sturdy poly/cotton fabric and used that as the back of the pillow. It is stuffed with 100% polyester fibers, just like a stuffed animal :) As you can see in the photo, the back looks more than a bit lumpy, but I'm thinking that should even out over time.

This pillow was kind of a fun experiment for me... 3 things about this pillow show that my skills are sometimes less than 'perfect' when it comes to how it looks (but never on the quality!)... 1)the back is a bit lumpy from the stuffing. 2)The hand quilting is great, however there are many quilters out there that could kick my butt from here to Tuesday with their hand-stitching excellence. 3) The whip-stitching for sure won't win any awards :)

The pillow is in excellent condition and is up for plenty of use on your bed or thrown around your sofa. All the material used consists of cotton, a cotton/poly blend, or full on polyester. Most of the patches are over-edged to prevent fraying (in addition to the quilting which also provides additional strength) and all the outside pillow edge seams are double-stitched to help ensure longevity. The pillow can be machine washed on the gentle cycle with cool water and dried on low heat.

Enjoy!
