Tutorial: Mirror, Mirror Pillow

Roseann from Rosebud's Cottage is back with a blogging design ring tutorial!

She's sharing her design for the "Mirror, Mirror Pillow" using the bold Fashionista fabrics by Ro Gregg. If you've ever considered doing something a little less "by the book," we think you'll love Roseann's asymmetrical project. A little bit of piecing, a little applique, and a whole lot of fun!

Before we pass you over to Roseann, one more thing--read down through to the bottom of the post to see how to enter the giveaway!

Here's Roseann:

When Fabri-Quilt sent me the yardage of Fashionista, I knew I didn't want to make the pieces too small. They were all so cute! I was getting my hair cut and my stylist handed me a mirror to show me the back ... and that's when it hit me about how I could use the fabric ... especially the one with the faces. I love how the faces look in the mirror. The pillow is big and looks great on my bed. Now I guess I need to make a quilt to go with it!

To make this 20" square pillow, you'll need the following Fashionista fabrics:

1 fat quarter of the mottled red

1 fat quarter of the faces print

1 fat quarter of the lipstick print

1 fat quarter of the shoe print

1/3 yard of the mottled black

3/4 yard of the mottled red/black for backing
