I’ve been working on this quilted cushion for what seems like forever now – I made the patchwork panel back in mid-March, when I reviewed Love….Quilting, but it took me a while to get round to buying the fabric for the back, and then I had to be brave enough to try an in-seam zip (turned out to be as straightforward as anything..). And then, of course, the garden intervened for a little while. This afternoon I decided I couldn’t take having around 20 unfinished projects lying around for a moment longer – so I decided to have a bit of a break from hefting rocks about & got the sewing machine out. It felt like such a relief to get something off my WIP list.
I think it’s come out rather nicely – I’m particularly pleased with how neat it all is. The fabrics are from La Petite Ecole range from French General. I used a Jelly Roll that I got from the always excellent Hulu Crafts. It’s odd, I really do love these fabrics, but they’re not my usual style at all.. I just can’t resist the lovely muted shades, and the little floral patterns and polka dots are so endearing.
Has anyone else got a project finished this weekend?
