Lacey Love

I had a friend in college who absolutely loved anything pink, frilly, and vintage.  She was a wonderful designer, and I always admired her sense of style even though it was very different from my own.  Well, this friend of mine just recently tied the knot, so I decided to take a dive into eyelet and lace in order to design something special for her.

I used mostly vintage lace and tatting to add layers of texture to this heart pillow.  The pink background was then paper-pieced around the lace.  Finally, I hand-quilted around the heart and embroidered their wedding date on the side.

Working with all of the lace was rather enjoyable and I quite like how it adds so much visual interest through texture!
