(Not sure if this should go in the Quilting category as it's technically not quilted, just patchwork...)

It's not exactly rocket science, but this is a Christmas present I made for my cousin. I selected colours to match her dining room. The light brown patches are this suede-like fabric that's similar to her chairs.

I couldn't fit the damn thing in one picture, but here's one end:

The other end:

The middle, where I stencilled a pattern with gold fabric paint:

Close-ups of the pattern. What I did was trace parts of the pattern from the grey jacquard fabric. I then "picked up" the pattern from that fabric (printed it on top of the existing pattern) and spread it from there onto the other fabric:

The back is plain beige, with the pattern printed onto it, so you can use it both ways up. Sorry I didn't iron it properly before taking pictures!

The binding is just satin bias tape. The whole thing took less than a day to make!

I am collecting cotton Hawaiian fabric scraps for a quilt if you wanted to send any my way!
