    I made these yesterday out of an antique goose down feather bed that had belonged to a friend's mother. Now to make monogrammed shams to put over them.

    The square shape and certain size make them "European". It's just a term from the domain of bed linens.

    In Europe (at least the German-speaking areas) this is the shape of the pillows. Very nice!

    One of my best friends is from Heidelberg, Germany and I loved the pillows on her guest bed. A friend in Mississippi said she would share an antique feather bed her grandmother made with me, and I took advantage of it. The geese were southern domestic geese. :) The pillows are 26" square and quite plump. Thanks for the kind words. Sure wish I had tidied up a bit before I snapped the picture though. Ha.
