Ananas Pillow Pattern

I am so exited I can finally share this pillow with you all!!
I was tickled pink when Tacha asked me if I would like to contribute to Fat Quarterly Magazine.

This issue is all about colour, as usual you will find plenty of lovely patterns for all sorts of wonderful projects and more!
My entry is the Ananas Pillow, which means pineapple in Dutch. It's an easy- no paper piecing- way of creating a pineapple block using a rotary cutter and clear ruler.

I mixed scrappy with lots of text and numbers prints on white background to make it a little easier to bring more colours to the mix - I hope you will enjoy it!
The issue is out tomorrow and you will be able to purchase your own copy here

This is a big day for me :-)
