a commissioned piece

This is a flyer from a church in PA; the image was photographed from inside the church through a window. I was asked to created a pillow for the retiring pastor, using the window as the focus of the pillow. Here's what I created.I used plain black cotton fabric for the main body of the pillow, and a soft yellow swirl print for the background. The pillow is edged with a satiny black trim.

Ah, what beautifiul proportions! Is it pieced or fused on there? It's hard to tell what you did, but it's perfect!

It took me a while to figure out how to do it.
Basically, it involved drawing the design on freezer paper and using that to cut out the black window outlines. I used fusible bias tape for the lower curve. All of the black is stitched (appliqued) to the yellow.
Not the kind of project I want to do a whole lot more of. :)
