Another Day, Another Pillow.

Patchwork Pillow
Originally uploaded by Grey Cottage Studio
I won a slew of fabric squares on ebay, which I bid on with no particular project in mind. They've been sitting in my little grey cottage until Friday, when I decided to make some new placemats. See, I bought some purple fabric with red dots to make napkins, but when I got home, it cried out for these fabric squares (they're from the same collection. I suppose they recognized each other).

Anyway, a few hours later (not sequential hours, that would be too much to ask), The squares formed a nice nine patch, the polka dots made a backing, a little stitch-in-the-ditch quilting, and voila. A pillow.

No, it doesn't match any of my rooms. Is it a Christmas gift? Or, do a just get a new duvet?

I guess you'll just have to re-decorate to match the kaffe fasset.

I'm not big into matchy-matchy anyway. I say keep it around the house just to shake things up!
