What a pear! This pattern is from the book Nature's Offerings by Maggie B. This is one of many projects from the book. Mom made this one using silk matka. We washed the fabric to give it a worn look. The pear is great in person.......it looks so old. The book retails for $24.95 and the matka is $22.00 per yard. If you haven't worked with this fabric it is nubby but has a great "hand" to it.
