Rickrack Pillow

Project maker Judy Sams Sohn used large rickrack and prints from Patty Young's Mezzanine collection for Michael Miller Fabrics to create a square patchwork pillow. To protect seams from fraying when the pillow cover is washed and dried, she used lightweight fusible interfacing on the wrong side of the pillow top.
