A traditional pillow?
When I took my first quilting class it was a sampler class and we made a lot of traditional blocks. I was fascinated by this one block - the Sunrise Star - and I wanted to see what it looked like in some contemporary fabrics. So here's my little Sunrise Star pillow in Parisville fabric. I am still unsure about the green border, but I've backed my new quilt in that fabric so I think it will work well once it's sitting on the bed and I tend to fold over the top so the backing shows.
I backed it with Kona ash (which looks really great with this colorway incidentally) and added a little of the purple eye drops.
So what do you all think? Modern? Traditional? Do you like? Let me know if anyone is interested in a tutorial. I took photos but I haven't edited them.
