Lumbar Pillow +
« on: February 08, 2018, 11:08:04 PM »

I have been on a pillow making journey and have completed a lumbar pillow.  This had me perplex about matching the print on the fabric and the direction of the print.  The thread is here: http://artisanssquare.com/sg/index.php?topic=1409.msg35066#msg35066 - which discusses pattern placement- if anyone is interested.
I've learned how to taper the corners, how to join the piping correctly, and how to add an invisible zipper to a welted pillow.
Here is the completed pillow- a contracted job for a friend of mine.

Thank you, Karen....the down inserts are from RH, but the fabric is sourced by the customer.  I grew to love the print as I worked with it.  It seems to be a linen or linen blend- it doesn't wrinkle as linen would, but has the feel and look of linen.
