This is a patchwork pillow featuring two panels which were hand-printed with my lino block prints. A branch with blossoms in yellow on fuschia and two separate butterflies in yellow on turquoise are printed on panels on the front.

The reverse is a patchwork of a printed echino fabric in grey on hot pink with lime corduroy. I love the memento mori - the skulls hidden in with the ladybugs are other signs of life.  Grin

Cheers!

Thanks very much! I did join together fabrics which I might not otherwise - but I needed a burst of colour.  Smiley

Jessafurr - the pink fabric is by echino. I got it at The Workroom, a shop in Toronto
http://www.theworkroom.ca/

The echino website: http://www.f-echino.com/tex.html
lists some other suppliers. They make pretty fantastic prints.
