Some Chicopee Tippecanoe fun

Try saying that three times fast.

After making my Tippecanoe blocks for the QAL last week, I found I hadn't quite got them out of my system - they're one of those blocks that become kind of addicitive. So despite having a few other things that I really should have been doing, I started cutting to make a Tippecanoe cushion (pillow for those of you on the wrong side of the world ;o) ).


It will be a 20" cushion cover - so I'm making sixteen 5" blocks. I am so, so enjoying working with Chicopee (I've been holding myself back from starting something with it - so hopefully this little project will satisfy me until I've finished a few of my WIPs...) - and I'm pairing it with natural Essex linen.

Oh and some non-quilty-but-still-of-interest-to-some-of-you (I think) happy mail - some Heather Ross mix and match note paper and envelopes. I may or may not have got a few of these ;o)

That's going to be an amazing pillow/cushion (here in Canada, we use both words interchangeably!). LOVE LOVE LOVE your fabric.
