Cathedral Windows Vintage Pillow #1

$ 65.00

We took a STUNNING Cathedral Windows Quilt and turned it into a pillow so you can have enjoy a piece of this quilt in your home. The quilt was entirely hand-sewn with fabrics dating from 1940-1970 including feed sacks. We cut it to form a 14 inch pillow that reverses to flax linen.

About the “Cathedral Window” quilt pattern: It became a popular quilt pattern in the mid-1900s. A Library of Congress article on Virginia quilter Ila Patton notes, “Unlike typical quilts in which the top is constructed and then joined with two other layers to form the finished quilt, the “Cathedral Window” is formed by folding and sewing squares of fabric together. Contrasting squares of fabric are inserted across the seams, producing an interlocking curved design.
