Geneva Pillow Sham Pattern


This pillow sham is a reproduction of the antique piece that Annelis gave to me on my first visit to Geneva. I loved the motif and border so much that I had to figure out how to recreate it. I chose a finer yarn to make a soft fabric that would drape nicely on the curved shape of the pillow.
