Before we leave the Valentine season behind, I wanted to share one final heart craft idea. This one is not my own but was a gift to Naiya that her Oma found whilst local artisan shopping last year.
Though the front of the pillow is cut from a vintage quilt (that likely was not entirely intact), the back is of a new, soft, plush material. I occasionally find beautiful but somewhat edge worn, hand made quilts in thrift shops and have the instinct to rescue them from their lack of appreciation. What would I do with another old (albeit exquisitely crafted), frayed blanket I wonder? Well, now I know. This one has been well loved.
