Design Concept

In 1984 I made two pillows as gifts. The first, Blue Maple Pillow, was made from fabric that was dyed navy blue, then discharged with grass and leaves lying on top, to create the patterns of leaves and weeds. The borders were pieced Seminole style.

The second pillow was made for a teenaged nephew whose passions at the time were piano and soccer. The center of the black and white pillow is in the pattern of a soccer ball, and the borders are piano keyboards. In the corners I quilted musical staffs with treble and bass clefs.

In 1996, I made two more pillows out of men’s suiting fabrics and recycled ties. I used variations on traditional patterns for the piecing. The round pillow also included some cotton velveteen. These pillows were made as gifts for my father.

In 1988 I was asked to do a pillow project for a magazine and I made a couple of pillows with my High Tech Tucks technique.
