Wonderland

Can we talk about fabric?  Good, ‘cuz I really like talking about fabric. 

Before last weekend I hadn’t been to my quilt shop in ages.  And you know what fabric I walked out with?  This stuff:  Wonderland by Momo.  (See it here, buy it here or here.)    I know, I know,  it’s been out a few months and I’m just now catching on.  The colors are just so warm and calming and the illustrations are perfectly whimsical.  And I wonder how someone can come up with something so put together in a random kind of way like this. 

I decided to make a cushion.

Wonderland Cushion

It’s reverse appliqued – see the raw edge?  There are reverse applique tutorials all over the web.

And here’s the back that’s maybe just a
little bit
on the crazy-busy side.

    Beautiful! How do you make such perfect circles? Mine are all wonky, and never look anywhere as neat as yours.

    Love it! Wonderland is one of my favorite collections out there. I’ve got some charm packs ready to go for a small quilt.

    Both of your pillows are gorgeous. Very appropriate designs for the fabrics used. Clever styling.

    Love the Wonderland stuff. Had my eye on it for a while. Just don’t know what to use it for. Pillow was perfect.
