Block by Block

Always intrigued by quilts and hooked rugs and needlework, I've been focusing lately on the patterns from other cultures and countries that feature similar shapes and patterns as traditional American crafts.

John Robshaw's pillows offer a nice little case study on this subject.  (Are case studies still a thing in the working world?  We did a million of them back when I twisted into pantyhose five days a week.)

Robshaw's handblocked designs have always showcased common shapes, but this latest collection features more embroidery and stitching.

You can find the pillow collection here.
