Here in the Hudson Valley, we have the good fortune of being surrounded by many artisans and crafters. So when planning the plethora of projects we had in mind for Bengal, it seemed only natural to reach out to some of the talented folks in our area. Members Erin and Michelle of the Hudson Valley Modern Quilt Guild jumped at the chance to sew with some advance yardage, and whipped up two lovely Bengal pillows.
Michelle chose to feature the Love in a Mist Block for her pillow front. We love the contrast between the indigo and white grounds, putting a modern spin on a traditional quilt block.
She backed her pillow with Tiger Mosaic in White, one of our favorite prints!
Erin chose an Alissa Haight Carlton pillow design. The narrow strips of Bengal look striking against the navy background, creating a wonderful graphic effect. She complimented the design by quilting in a straight line pattern.
Both the pillows turned out beautifully and showcased how well the Bengal prints pair with our Hawthorne Hues! We would also like to send out a big thank you to Michelle and Erin for sharing their talents with us!
