I love my new sofa pillows. For lots of reasons: Hexies, hand quilting, Christmas fabric, creamy background....but most of all because they were pieced by my friend Sharon Brandli.
One of the pillow tops was already quilted with chunky stitches so I finished the other two likewise. My stitches aren't as perfect as Sharon's but I love the surface texture on each one.
Sharon's hand-piecing took many hours of tiny stitching to put the hexagon together. Some of the papers were still intact and had to be removed but the tops were all finished when I brought them home with me from her sewing room. A few yards of Osnaburg backing was all it took to turn them into pillows.
These lovelies will be a very special reminder of her generous spirit in my holiday decor. I'm humbled to give them a good home.
Merry Christmas to all of my blogging friends near and far.
