The Creative Process

I've wanted to make a crazy patchwork pillow for awhile now. I finally had time on Sunday to work on the project -
here is my creative process...

I gathered most of my "living room" fabrics together to look at and envision the arrangement of blocks

Then I drew out blocks of various sizes onto a template (it took a couple of times to get it right)
I colored in each block with a marker to understand how the colors would flow with the intended fabrics.
Finally, I cut each block out and assembled the pillow top.


I still need to cut out the back panel of the pillow and then sew it together, but I'm really excited that my vision came to life.

This is so cool - I love the pillow. Someday you should quit your day job.
