Can you tell?! Everything I've made lately has been bright and juicy and downright cheerful. I've wanted to make a couple of patchwork pillows for several months and finally found the time last week. I am so pleased with how they turned out regardless of the fact that they really don't match my living room.
I embroidered some abstract flowers in the middle that are reminiscent of the pattern in the Amy Butler fabric that I used - Clay Geisha Fans, I believe. Love that fabric. Must buy some more and make a skirt this summer.
I added ties on the back out of scraps. Thrifty, huh? As you can see, though, I have most definitely not mastered the art of pillow-making. My envelope closure on the back didn't work out exactly as I had planned but now I know how to make it work the next time. It's really amazing how little fabric these require. I have some ideas up my sleeve to spruce up our bedroom once the winter linens are put away.
