Quilted 16" X 16" pillow with ruffle.  The center square is hand painted. I traced an old time picture of George and Martha Washington from a book of black and white illustrations. I then transferred it onto white muslin using a #2  micro ink sharpie in black and used acrylic paints to fill in. Martha also has a piece of  white lace ruffle tacked on at the end of her sleeve.  100% washable.  Americana Folk Art inspired.

Thank you! it was a ....Just because.  I fell in love with the illustrations in a book so I traced away. So it became a functional, yet fancy bed pillow :-)
