The hand crafted pillow top is hand quilted by the artist. The pillow front is designed to have the feel of a basketball court with a wood pattern fabric around the pillow top to represent the floor of a basketball court.
The inside fabric squares are alternating white sparkle fabric squares and basketball fabric. Inside each white square, a basketball hoop has been intricately hand quilted with fantastic detail. The center is framed with a black fabric that represents the out of bounds line.
Many hours of fine, hand quilting was done by the artist to bring out the desired effect for the basketball hoops. The basketballs were also outlined to give them a 3-D effect.
The quilting stitches are heirloom-quality and greatly enhance the overall design of the pillows. This is finely detailed hand quilting that is only achieved after years of practice. The stitching of the hoops really gives this piece a unique quality that you can not find anywhere else.
Each pillow has a high quality, hypo-allergenic polyester pillow form that is very soft yet holds its shape and is a dream to rest your head on. The back of the pillow is covered in a black mottled fabric (detail photo available upon request). All fabrics in the pillows are 100% cotton. The batting used for the hand quilting is 100% polyester.
These pillows are machine washable and dryable which makes them perfect for everyday use on your favorite sofa or chair. Complete care instructions are included. Crafted in a smoke-free and animal-free environment.
The fabric used in these pillows is no longer produced so these are limited edition pillows that other collectors will not have in their collections. These pillows are only available directly from the artist.
