We Have a Winner!

Before I announce the winner of this past weekends Giveaway, I want to share another sneak peek at my contribution for the next issue of Fat Quarterly -- My Heartfelt Pillow Cover! This is a project combining felt, fabrics, and a reverse applique technique to create this one-of-a-kind, soft and cozy pillow cover, very similar to my Purple Stitch Pillow that was a favorite here and on flickr.
