Petal Pillow (antique)

Growing up, I always played and adored my mom's petal pillows that she inherited from her grandmother. They were so much fun to look at all the fabric colors and designs when I was supposed to be taking a nap.

I mentioned the pillow to my grandma and off she went to find hers. And then...she gave it to me!! This is something that I will forever treasure!

Check out the back of the pillow. Isn't it neat?

Apparently, she made at least 7 of these pillows (different shapes and varieties) possibly more. Can you imagine the patience?

I googled it, and found an owl pattern that I bought to try. Christmas presents for the kids! It will be a great stash buster for all those scraps, and something that maybe they will enjoy as much as I did.
