Handmade Quilted Pillow
I love when we can find something that seems to be useless and turn it into something beautiful. I found this old quilt a few weeks ago and it wasn't in the best of condition.
Quilted items have a special place in my heart because my great grandmother many times took old scraps of clothing and turned it into a beautiful quilt. She grew up during The Great Depression so she spent a lifetime of nothing going to waste. She was a character but I inherented a few of her quilts.
It's no surprise I grabbed this beautiful colorful quilted material the day I found it! I knew immediately I could have a pillow made for myself out of this old torn material. It would be the perfect colorful vintage cottage style touch. These pair perfectly with our classic ticking stripe pillows!!
I had a few extras made for Classic Cottage Co. because who doesn't love something handmade, then salvaged, re-saved, and re-created??
Note - This material is very fragile! It belongs in a special place. Also, each pillow was handmade using scraps so they're certainly not perfect. Taking something already handmade and re-creating it in yet again handmade fashion is truly special. Some may appear to be lopsided or more quilted fabric on one side than the other.
