Wednesday WIP





So I signed up for my first  Flickr swap of 2015 - The Great Pillow Fight.  Where as the name suggests we make pillows/cushions - whatever you like to call them.

Anyhoo my partner has a liking for colour - lots of it in rainbow or jewel tones, nothing pastel or insipid here.  I pulled out a few fabrics (lots actually and spread them all over my cutting table until I was happy with my choices) and arranged them into a colour wheel, wondering what I would make her.  Inspiration struck in the form of the Fractal Quilt Block by Patty Sloniger.  I have been wanting to make this for a while and now have the perfect excuse.  I also remembered seeing the perfect fabric for the backing in Spotlight, so that came home with me too.

So far I have completed five wedges and am liking how this is coming together. Fingers crossed my partner will too.

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.

  1. Your partner will love it!! It's such a great block and you've really got the perfect colours in your rainbow. It's funny hearing cushions called pillows, though I'm getting used to it by now.
