JANUARY 2016morville03Pattern: MORVILLE

Our MORVILLE pattern has been adapted from a pair of Elizabethan pillows given as gifts, one to the bride, one to the groom. The originals are dated 1601 and show the couples initials. A center panel contains stylized Wars of the Roses emblems and tulips. The border is a series of braids interwoven with acorns and tulip buds. One of the original historic samples of the  Wedding Pillow shown in the photo above on the left side is in the Art Institute of Chicago; the second one is at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. A gift of these pillows  will be cherished and is a generous personal way to honor a couple’s marriage.

While the originals are done in silk on linen, our kits are in wool on jute, stitched in our easy, fast and fun cross-point™ Technique. An alphabet chart is included in the kit so you can adapt the initials and year to suit your bride and groom or be left off entirely. The Wedding Pillow is for experienced stitchers, companion pillows are easy even for beginners. Please refer to the Pattern Pages on the website for four color and size options.

Available in four pillow sizes and four color choices:
MORVILLE WEDDING PILLOW – #MOWP (“X”) – 24″x24″ (62×62 cm)
Square MORVILLE Pillow (with Lattice center) – #MORV – 21″x21″ (53×53 cm)
