My Mom wanted something colorful, to go with her some what neutral/earth toned living room decor. She has a dark painting by my Granddads brother on the wall, which has an orange dot on it, so I tried to work with that. The "Funny Lady" I took from my etsy shop, but the scrap collage I made with Julie's long layer tile in mind.
I made the pillow using Denyse Schmidt's "foundation-piecing method" which I also used for my scarf. I'm very pleased with it and happy to be using some of the fabric scraps, I have been given from all over the world.
