Today was unseasonably cool here in Concord, with strong winds that discouraged outdoor activities—a perfect day for me to stay in and sew. I spent the morning working on this vibrant Ikat fabric by Trend. I love the combination of the deep raspberry color with orange and gray. The design repeat is large so I spent some time thinking about how best to take advantage of the limited fabric that I had—only one yard! I came across it at a fabric store in western Massachusetts. I wish they had more in stock.
In the end I decided on rectangular pillows, which should display nicely the design elements. Tomorrow I will add zippers, stitch fronts and backs together and take some pictures. Stay tuned!
