My client brought me these brightly colored, appliquéd pieces that she bought in Panama and wanted me to make her pillows from them.
She chose a black Sunbrella for front borders and the backs.
The village scene above was actually on a purse. I carefully took it apart and it has a second life as a throw pillow.
I am sure the designs have some kind of meaning, but I have no idea what.
The work is very intricate and beautiful.
I took the pictures on my bed, but in their new home, they live in a den/family room on a black leather sofa.
There is one other pillow which can be partially seen in the second pillow from the top. It is my favorite and I will put that one on Instagram.
