I tried some new to me quilting patterns which include feather quilting, clam shell and pebble quilting. The hand quilting is in a variagated perle thread.
The cushion has an envelope closure on the reverse and the back is quilted which helps to make it nice and squishy. It's great how reading craft blogs shows you new ways of doing things. A revelation to me was binding the edges as you would a quilt, I can't remember which blogs I read it on but thanks to whoever you are. It saves making a piped edging , I love it.
I made the cushion to match the quilt I made for Lily's Quilts Dead Simple QAL. I love the autumnal colours.
Here it is with the back of the quilt.
Now onwards and upwards. I decided, perhaps rather too late to Christmas to make a quilt as a Christmas gift for a member of my family. The fabrics are washed and ironed ready and I've decided on the design which I've designed myself but I'm nervous to cut into the fabrics and get going in case my design doesn't work...............I'll show my progress soon.
I'm linking this post to Amylouwho's sew and tell Friday, her button is in my side bar if you fancy popping over to see what others have been up to.
Now also linking to Fabric Tuesday over at Quiltstory.
