Mom: Stop reading.
So my mom emailed me a picture of a cardinal pillow she found online and asked me if I had any red fabric that color. I took that as a sweet hint that she might like something handmade for Christmas...
Since I'm on a little quilting kick of late, I decided to try paper piecing. Now that the block is done, I'm thinking it might make a better table runner than pillow. And I figured I would put it in an all white runner and maybe a brown binding. But I love love love the wood fabric (from hawthorne threads). It's pretty cool, no? Is it too much if I put the block in the wood fabric?
What do you think? White on white with wood binding? or wood all around? maybe red binding?
Oh, heck, I'll probably just bring it all undone to her house and ask her what she wants...but I'd love to hear your opinions.
