can you tell..

I am ready for spring?
I talked to my friend Christine earlier today, (check out her amazing interior blog, and her private blog! Eye candy for sure!), we we're exchanging links to fabric, Etsy, quilt ideas and such, and after we both signed off I was dying to make my own patchwork pillow. And what better idea to finally use some of my fabric odds and ends.

Oh yes.



I am so happy with the way the pillow turned out, I've never attempted patchwork before, and it was much easier than I though. Fun indeed!







How cute would this pillow be as a picnic pillow in the park, or on your couch just in time for spring. Ahh. I am so ready.

I will be updating my Etsy store this coming weekend with this pretty pillow, and more, so keep your eyes open for some cute stuff :)

Hope you all had a lovely Wednesday <3

xoxo.

Hi!
I "found" your blog through Christine's post, and I've fallen in love with your blog and shop already! Also, are you from Stavanger as well? Because I'm from Bryne, and I live in Eugene, Oregon! So fellow foreigners in Oregon!

Karin said...

Never mind my Stavanger question, I'm slightly air-headed =)

Jätte fin kudde (pute?) ;-)
Jag skall göra några nya kuddar när vårat vardagsrum är klart (vi håller på och gör om) och då hoppas jag lyckas lika bra som du ;-)

That pillow is so gorgeous! I love the color choices you used. It makes me want to go create some spring crafts too!

Det tar ca to timer å kjøre fra Portland til Eugene, men det kommer litt an på hvor i Portland tror jeg. Uansett så elsker jeg Oregon, veldig fin stat!

I love the mix of patterns & colors! Is there a tutorial to make a pillow similar to this one? I just got quilting tools for Christmas and this looks like it would be a great first project.
