    Reminds me of the technique Caryl Bryer Fallert was known for in the early 1990s. http://www.bryerpatch.com/gallery/gallery.htm Scroll down to 1991 and 1993, for examples.

    I took her class at the Houston International Quilt Festival one year (she is such a lady and so gifted!) and found the technique to be fairly easy though requiring rapt attention. I made a quilt called Rainforest Breakthrough in that class; got to find it a take a photo of it.

    Your pillow is lovely!

    if anyone makes this please post pictures of steps involved. I can't follow the written instructions, my brain just can't 'see' it.
    Got fabric?

    I'm pretty sure the QB member that made this did a pictorial tutorial for it. I just can't find it right now!!!

    Should have looked harder before I posted! Here it is!

    Lowell made one of these for his sister for Christmas. I saw it on another site they belong to. They are really nice pillows!

    I checked out how to make the pillow. It looks so fantastic and hard to make, but after I read the instructions, I could make that. All I need is the pillow. I think I will try it. Izy, thank you for taking the time to show each step and the goof (which I would have done) you made. I love it when someone shows a new quilting technique (to me anyway) and all the steps. That's a true quilter.

    Thank You. That is a real pretty pillow and something new to me. Going to bookmark the tutorial for later.
