Intrepid Thread Challenge Reveal!

A while back, Julie from Intrepid Thread    invited people to participate in a challenge using these fabrics:


You could make anything you wanted as long as you posted pictures on Instagram. I cut my fabrics up into 2 1/2 inch squares to go with the mini charm pack. I tried out several different ideas on the design wall.

I ended up going with this one:


I added borders and quilted it in an allover swirl.


And then made it into a pillow.


You can check out what everyone else did with their challenge pieces over at Intrepid Thread today by clicking here. Thank you, Julie for the great challenge!
