    Matching Pillows to Special Wedding Quilt

    After making quilt, I had a lot of fabric left over. I decided that pillows needed to be made. The Star Pillow was a pattern from "la Todera.com." Called the Harlequin Star Pillow. My great Aunt Edith made this style of pillows back in the 1960's. I remember them from when I was a little girl, my grandma had some made from velvet. The square pillows were 13 inches and the bola is 14 inches.

    These are for my new daughter-in-law. She is so excited. Thanks for looking.

    Beautiful kaleidoscopes and pillows. I love how the star-shaped pillow echoes the stars in your quilt. Your daughter-in-law is blessed to receive such a treasure. Thanks for sharing.

    beautiful quit and pillows
    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.
