There's a make of paper tissues here called Zewa, and their boxes are really cool. They have several "mod" style patterns - a great marketing tool as it certainly makes me buy them rather than any other brand - and ages ago I saved this one.
The idea was that one day, when I was a proper quilter, I would make the design into a quilt. If I could work out how.
But now I don't need to bother, because someone else has already done it. Julie, at Distant Pickles has come up with the Mod Pod quilt, which is pretty close to my tissue box don't you think?
I actually came across it when Leanne made her Whitewater quilt,
and now she's actually hosting a QAL, so I just have to join in don't I?
I needed a quilt to go with the new colour scheme in our spare room as the old pink quilt cover really doesn't do the job any more!
I've bought the pattern and I've pulled out some greens and blues.............
.............and I'm ready to go!
And if you fancy joining in, Leanne is giving away a copy of the pattern, although the giveaway closes today, , and there's a flickr group too. Looking forward to getting started!
