patchwork pillow. surprise surprise. who’d have guessed?
this pic makes the pillow look like it’s got pointy doberman pinscher ears.
what i think happened was the doberman elf ears were created from my hurried stuffing of the pillow form into the cover. oops. and it’s raining today so new outdoor pics ain’t gonna happen. could be the first cruddy day of the summer. so i’ll just post these few photos of my neon fabrics/neon thread/who-needs-sunshine-when-you’ve-got-this-nuclear-pillow quilted patchwork pillow today, and maybe take more photos later on. or maybe not because i’ve GOT to break out of my comfort patchwork pillow zone and GET BUSY figuring out a baby quilt. i thought i had til october to make a quilt, but the bébé shower is in 2 weeks. it’s good for me to work with a deadline, but really, in my head i’m still convinced that i’ve got ’til october. so this might be it for blog posts for awhile. me and my machine will be forged together in holy matrimony these next couple weeks. that, or i’ll be forced to visit a babys-R-us and buy something off the shelf. ugh. nope, i can’t do it. i just can’t. i won’t.
this looks less doberman-y.
i’m off to buy some simple blue and white fabrics. yup, it’s a dude baby. and he’s getting a macho dude baby modern quilt.
