patchwork fabric wall decor

Last week I decided that the guest bedroom needed some decor above the bed. I scored this huge rug hooking hoop at JoAnn for $6.99 ((I say scored as if I know how much they normally cost)) and knew I'd put fabric in it.  I've done lots & lots of embroidery hoop framed fabric. This time, though, I didn't want to just put a big chunk of pretty fabric in there. 

I decided to grab random fabrics from my stash, cut random pieces of said fabrics that somewhat matched the comforter on the bed ((the comforter is actually from my sophomore year of college & I still love it)) & piece them together in no particular order...no rhyme or reason people. That's what fast projects are about. 

I love the way it turned out! 

((wouldn't this photo be a fun blog header?))
I felt like the font was appropriate for the project :)



love. 

p.s. stay tuned for a giveaway tomorrow from one of my wonderful sponsors! hint: fabric goodness. :)

  16. I completely love this! I have a frame that I'm debating painting and wasn't sure what to do with it. It's a mirror right now but I was thinking of framing fabric, I LOOOVE this idea! I think I may make one for my bedroom too, we just moved and got a new comforter and our room needs some punch of color!
