Make Modern Magazine – Realists & Dreamers

Today is my stop on the brand-spankin’ new Make Modern Magazine blog hop! I’ve got a project featured that I’ve been teasing around a bit–those black hooker boots never go out of style, I’ll tell you what! I created a block called a Trip Around the Universe which is an improved version of a Trip Around the World. Because really, who wants to wind up where they started off?

I then made the block in two colour ways inspired by a quote from television show Modern Family: “There are dreamers and there are realists in this world, you think the dreamers would find the dreamers and the realists would find the realists, but more often than not the opposite is true. See the dreamers need the realists to keep the dreamers from soaring too close to the sun. And the realists? Well without the dreamers, they might not ever get off the ground.”

The red-Earthy version represents the Realists, while the teal-sky version represents the Dreamers.  I’ll let you guess which one I am! You can see pictures of both colour ways and the full pattern release in the debut of Make Modern Magazine, on sale now! There are an amazing range of projects from some of my favourite people, so I know they are soon to be your favourites too!

  5. I love this pillow … you're awesome. Why haven't we become friends sooner???? I would say I love you as well, but that might be a bit forward for my first comment.

    Give me a Trip Around the Universe any day! Great pillow – I'm loving the teal version loads but I think maybe I'm more of Realist.

  7. Love these cushions and so thrilled to have them in Make Modern!
