Fabric, Friends, and a Little Challenge

Back in October six of us... me, Becca, Julie, Brooke, Joanna, and Sally... were gushing over Vanessa's new fabric collection when an idea sparked.  Six creative ladies, some super-cute Color Me Happy fabric, a little challenge... and the Love a Challenge was born.

I knew almost right away what I was going to make... a pillow version of my I {heart} Floressence quilt.  This time I made the patchwork piece with the 2.5" Moda Candy pieces, rather than the half-square triangles of the original quilt... partly to show off the fabric better, partly because making 2" half-square triangles would have taken forever!

I love how it turned out!

And in true Tammy fashion... I bought a pillow form for it this weekend, and 2 days later realized I was making an 18" pillow, not a 14" pillow.  Guess I'll be making another trip to the store this weekend.

What a great idea amongst friends! Sorry you have to go back for another pillow form. I always have to think twice on the sizes before purchasing one too;)

Becca said...

Very pretty!

That sounds like something I would do!

Joanna said...

So fun! Well done. That would look great, well, absolutely anywhere. Happy Valentine's Day! ~joanna
