Yay, I'm glad I'm not the only "free-spirited" (ahem) quilter out there! So, you know when you learn some new sewing trick, and you just can't wait to do it and so you drop all other projects that you really SHOULD finish to do the new thing? Yeah. Check this out. Seriously, immediately had to drop everything and make a patchwork pillow.This one has already been given away to someone whom I owed a pillow, but I am going to make more. What I haven't decided though, is whether to put them in the shop. I feel like it is a bit of an ethical dilemma, because, yeah, I know Alicia Paulsen (who, by the by, is the reason I started reading craft blogs, and then started my own craft blog, and is a minor deity in my eyes) didn't invent the patchwork pillows, and I know mine will be nothing like hers, and I know that probably I won't even sell any, but I feel WEIRD taking something someone else sells, and showed me how to make, and then trying to profit on my own version. Is this kosher? Is that sentence even remotely understandable? Opinions?
Anyway. I loved making this, I loved picking out and arranging the squares, I loved quilting it (though I think I might do some wilder quilting on my next ones,) so I am a happy happy crafter. Pillows!
