works in progress

i have so many projects going right now that i don't even know where to start sharing... i guess this is the one that is closest to being finished. it's going to be a big (20-inch!) pillow for my "make mine modern" partner. she is a big fan of the fabric line ruby star rising (and who can blame her?) so i bought a bunch of it and pieced it all together to make this:

another thing i've been working on is making labels for quilts. i usually just write mine out with a micron pen, but i decided to try out spoonflower for printing a pre-made label. here is what i designed:

i tried to make it pretty generic so that it could go with any number of projects. i can't wait to get my order! i have to wait an excruciating 18 days before it arrives, but i figured while i waited i would try some more techniques. if anyone has good label recommendations, i'd love to hear them!
