Last weekend I needed a quick project – one that I could start and finish in a day. I’m in the middle of making two big quilts and don’t anticipate finishing either of them until 2013. So, with an urge to cross something off my list, I whipped up this little pillow. I purchased the fabric at Marden’s in Maine earlier this year, and as we were admiring its vintage feel, my friend Stephanie said, “This needs to be a pillow, it’s so grandma chic!”
So perfectly grandma chic indeed, and as a recent visitor also said, “It reminds me of orange sorbet.” The pillow adds a touch of softness to the starkness of my contemporary furnishings. It measures approximately 19″ x 19″ and is finished with a 1/4″ bias binding. Overlapping panels on the backside are held together with three light wood buttons. Now you’ll have to excuse me, I’m off to my local bodega to pick up some yummy sorbet.
