Sometimes I buy fabric because I love it so much, I can't live without it. Sometimes I don't know what I'm going to do with it. Sometimes I don't buy enough of it because it's pricey. And sometimes I get a wild hair and cut them into squares. I love patchwork, and it's a way for me to get all of the fabrics I love into one loveable piece. Voila!

Very cute!! Is it a pillow?? In the picture it almost looks like a slipcover. Hmmmmmmmph, what a great idea... a patchwork slipcover!! I have to tell you, your color selections surprised me. I've gotten used to your vibrant pink, blue, yellow...

I do the same thing, I can't go into a fabric store without making a purchase, even if its just half a metre! I would love to make a quilt with all my favourite fabrics one day. Yours is really beautiful!

So many fabrics, so little time.
I have hiding spots of animal print fabrics all over the condo...I must set a day or two aside to make a patchwork throw...just never seem to get the time.
Love the fabrics you used, great job, sweet pillow.
