Victorian Bed and Patchwork Pillows

A few days ago I finally got around to "cleaning" up my Antique Victorian bed. This bed is in my sewing room, and I use it as my "table", so to speak, and so it gets really messy and cluttered with all kinds of fabrics and trims and such. So, I've spruced it up a bit, with some pretty Rachel Ashwell Shabby Chic ruffled, rosey and pink pillow shams. The 2 large Euro pillows in the back I made using RASSC pink ruffled sheets. Love them!! The 3 large quilted patchwork pillows are all available for purchase on Ebay. Just click the link on my sidebar to take a peek at them if you like.

Here is a better close-up view of the Patchwork pillows. I just love creating these, and it's such a good way to use up the scraps of fabric that I have been accumulating over the years too! I have an old wicker laundry hamper that I keep some of my scraps in.

Hope everyone is enjoying this first day of May ~ It's a gorgeous day here in Michigan, and am loving this warm weather that seemed to take it's sweet time getting here, lol :)

Thanks so much for stopping by!! Have a great day, and rest of the week my friends!!

Hi Brenda, Your pillows are awesome and I love the antique bed. It makes you remember the olden days when I think life was better. I know we weren't in such a hurry and had time to visit with family and friends. Have a wonderful day and enjoy your little one every opportunity that you get. They grow up in a hurry. Hugs and Prayers from Your Missouri Friend.
