Pine Burr Pillow

Now that I'm making a Pine Burr quilt, I've found several pictured on websites and in magazines but I'd never seen a Pine Burr project in person until last week. I found this Pine Burr pillow cover in a local antique mall.

Its stitched by hand and the burrs seem narrow and more pointy than mine. It looks like the maker folded her fabrics in thirds to get this effect. The fabrics are mostly apparel fabrics, possibly even a man's tie, with some cottons.

Today I've been making more burrs for my Pine Burr project. It takes a lot of them to make a block, usually around 150! I'm especially trying to use up some of my older fabrics.

Until next time, Mayleen


  1. They certainly are amazing creations!!!

  2. I see the method to your madness ;) Use up the "old" fabric, in your stash!
    Oh no! Now you need to buy more because you don't have a varied selection!!! Your sly!! LOL
