This afternoon I completed sewing up the Prairie pillow. I had to make a time equation that was really interesting. When I lived in Chicago, I would have shopped for the backing fabric & trim and easily found something that would enhance the tapestry face. Here in southern Indiana, I realized I could easily spend a day looking for fabric, and not find it; also it takes 45 minutes each way to drive into Evansville to begin the search! So I hand-wove the backing as well as the fabric for the welting, and came out about the same in time, with superior results. So here you have it: wool twill brocade pillow face, wool twill backing & handmade welting. Voila!
This is lovely! I love how you interpreted flowers and foliage. What an heirloom.
What a lovely design and wonderful cushion Laura!
Gorgeous! And I love the fact that you wove your backing!!! I hope the pillow will now hold center-stage somewhere in your home.
not for my own home: it was a commission!
