One More Pillow Cover...

Did you sign up for my giveaway?  See the previous post.

I have written time (and time again) that I cannot do 'random'.  Did you miss those posts?  See them here and here and here and get the idea, right?

Well, I DID it!  And, I think I am okay with it.  

I had some small strips laying around from the pillow covers I already made, so I cut them into 2" squares and started laying them out.  Well, that can take forever for me.  So, I gathered them all up and dumped them next to Naomi Janome...telling myself that I was going to put the cover together in a RANDOM way. 

And, I did.  YAY!  I think I am okay with it.  

Okay, truth be told, those 4 white squares that are in a row did bother me, but I decided to leave them as they are...especially since I noticed that the 8 prints in a row right next to them didn't bother me.  ~grin~  I think I did 'random' okay. 

I am done making pillow covers.  With these fabrics, anyway.  I have not decided which of them will make it to the finish line, but I'll start with my faves...get them quilted and the backings made.  Then, I need to buy a few pillow forms...I am looking forward to seeing them together on my sofa!  

On to more projects!  

Hope your day is good.

I do random, I randomly pick out colors that go together and randomly put them all together to make sure they look right, lol. Random is fun though and I do appliques on them sometimes, so a good way to place something on a spot that has too many of one color. Yours came out wonderfully though.

I didn't notice the 4 white ones until I read you did. I think it's wonderful.

I like random and think this is beautiful. Scrappy, RANDOM patchwork is hands down my favorite so this is right up my alley. :)
