Star of Bethlehem Quilts, Two Brown-Toned Patterns, Square Pillow

Regular price $28.00 Sale

This 18 x 18 inch pillow is made from fabric custom-printed with two brown-toned quilts, one on each side, using the Star of Bethlehem motif. The quilt with the red in the center was made circa 1835, probably by a woman or women in Maryland, USA. The second quilt was made circa 1845 by First Baptist Church members in Perth Amboy, New Jersey, USA.

To make the pillow, the design is printed onto special paper, and then transferred using heat and pressure to become part of the fabric. This sublimation process creates a soft, breathable, vibrantly colored material.

The fabric is pre-shrunk polyester — soft and durable. The pillowcase is machine washable, with a concealed zipper. The resilient polyester filling insert retains its shape, and can be washed by hand. Made in USA.
