Tree of Life Pillow
The Tree of Life is a symbol for family, flourishing, health, and strength. For Jews, it also represents our most sacred object, the Torah. I simplified an ancient Sephardic design for this fusible appliqué. You are welcome to adopt this tree, or branch out, taking inspiration but "growing" a tree with asymmetry, a thick trunk "carved" or embroidered with your initials, button fruits, lace motif flowers, a nest of eggs, a partridge or turtledove. Similarly, use your tree design to adorn a 19” square pillow cover....but there's nothing to prevent you from to turn the design into a photo album cover, table runner, wall hanging, or medallion quilt.
