Handmade "Family" pillow

I recently completed this handmade "family" pillow. I chose Thimbleberries fabrics to compliment the fabric at the top of the pillow. My inspiration for this project was the vintage doily, gently tea stained and bordered with lace. I embroidered "family" on it and hand-stitched it to the patchwork base that I pieced. I embellished it with a couple of yoyo flowers with button centers and appliqued leaves. The patchwork pillow cover was completed with hand-painted wooden buttons closing the top.
