Planning a pillow

A few weeks ago, sign ups opened for round ten of the Pillow Talk Swap and I decided to join in this time around. It's been a fair while between swaps, and it's looking like a fun one to be involved in :o)

I've discovered one good thing about having a ridiculous decent fabric stash is it's pretty easy to use stuff I have on hand rather than having to order fabric. Pretty much all my partner's favorite fabric collections happened to be in my stash! So after a bit of stalking and getting feedback on my initial fabric pull, I've narrowed it down to these:


The paper pieces down the front are more Schoenrock Cross templates (I'm totally obsessed still), I just need to have a play around with layout ideas...

So I'm having a bit of a break from quilting and getting started on this. Oh, and trying to decide what block I want my bees to make next month when I'm queen in Scrappy? Sew Bee it. So hard!
