Fussy cutting

So, as promised, this is what I amused myself with last Sunday while nursing a sore neck.
Inspired by the lovely Clare at selfsewn I drew this lovely shape on some thick paper, cut it all up and then had a rummage in my fabric stash.
I cut each of the pieces really carefully and then tacked them around the papers.
Sewing them together was such fun, watching the pieces fit together perfectly, seeing all the flowers sitting so prettily.
Ah, EPP how I love you!

No idea what to do with this now.
I have considered turning it into a mug-rug, or a pin cushion.
I really enjoyed it so I'm thinking about keeping it as it is and making some more, in different fabrics.
Then joining them all together into a mini quilt.
Or maybe a big quilt?!?!
