Great Aunt Irma Patchwork Pillow

A few years back I inherited an old and long forgotten quilt top from my husband's great aunt Irma. She didn't make the quilt and no one seemed to know where it came from. After having sat in box for a good while I decided to cut out the individual flowers, embroider and applique them and reconstitute them into pillows. This one is the first in the series.

I'm also trying to mix in a variety of fabrics, so this top includes silks as well as cottons.
