* patchwork wall panel

Posted on November 8th, 2008 by maitreya. Filed under Sewing/Fabric Crafts.

I’ve had a fun time decorating my new office. So far I’ve got art by Lisa Solomon and Aurora Robson, Amy Ruppel, Wolfie and the Sneak, Matte Stephens, Xenia Taler, and my sister Ariel.  Oh, and an awesome Sami Hayek clock I got at Target.  There are 2 main spots left that still need something: the big blank space behind my door, and a sliver next to some of the other art. I think I’m going to find a wall decal for the behind-the-door spot. I’ve been wanting something fabric to break things up a bit, so this is going in the other spot. Linen + some patchwork strips, stapled around some stretcher bars. Somewhat inspired by the collected works of shimandsons.

It’s 6 inches x 24 inches. I should’ve probably made it slightly wider, which would’ve given me a little more leeway with the fabric strips, but whatever. It took longer to pick out the fabrics than it did to make. :P

I’m also looking for a cool lamp for my desk now that it’s starting to get all dark and rainy.  If you’ve got any recommendations, shoot me a comment. :)

    Your office sounds amazing!
    We should both post office pics on the same day.
    Actually, we should announce that it should be office/craft room pic day on the blogs…
    Maybe a week from now?
    What do you think?
