Shawl to Pillows

I was asked to cut up this amazing shawl and make it into pillows.  The 12" fringe was hopelessly tangled, and the client's decorating taste had moved on.
Since the shawl was a family heirloom, she wanted to preserve the memory in a form she could more easily use in her home.
Cutting this hole nearly killed me!
I love the border.  I wish the client had wanted it incorporated into the new pillows; oh well.
I wonder who wore it?

  2. Gorgeous fabric, I would have been a nervous wreck making that first cut.
