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.
