Rip Rip Rip Challenge

Two meetings ago at the STLMQG we were presented with the Rip, Rip, Rip Challenge.

Here were the official rules: You must make something (quilt, table runner, market bag, etc) that is bigger then a placement using 4 of the 5 fabrics that you received during the Ripping game. You can add any additional fabrics that you choose, just make sure that each of the 4 fabrics are clearly represented somewhere in the project. You may be asked to point them out, so be prepared. The finished item must be brought to the August 13th meeting, in order for you to be eligible for any prizes.
Think creatively and have fun!!

This was a super fun challenge and here is what I came up with!  I started with least lovely fabrics:

I brought the dots on the left and came home with the rest!

Here is what I came up with:

A cathedral windows pillow!!!  I used all 5 of the fabrics I received plus I added the white solid to tone it down a bit and really love how this pillow turned out!!  What do ya'll think? 
Here is the back of the pillow!!

Man, does it feel good to be sewing again!!! YEAH!!
