Well it's been months since I last posted here. I guess maybe that's because I haven't really done much creating. Sometimes I go through stints where I don't even think to enter my sewing room. But now I'm out of the rut, and back to stitching. Good thing because I've already passed the deadline for the Pillow Talk Swap but here's the final result:
I was playing around with colour value and ended up with this arrangement. No fabric is used twice, so I got to snip into alot of my stash options. This broken bento box is similar to John's tutorial over at Quilt Dad, but I didn't "wonk it up". The back is envelope style with natural linen - a nice calming contrast to these big bold prints.
And in return I received this!!!!!
A beautiful string block pillow cover...with pillow form included!!!! Thanks to Kristen over at ThreeDancingMagPies, I received this gorgeous throw pillow to nicely complement my living room. She even included some lovely cuts of Summer in the City out of print fabrics!!!! I've been hoarding that collection for a while now, gathering enough to make a quilt...so definitely next on the project list.
This swap was alot of fun. And it was only round one. Perhaps another??? And this time I WILL BE ON TIME!
