Cushions

Sorry about the messy template on the blog at the minute- Matt is working on it very soon so it should all be slick and nice looking. Once he is finished I will have a giveaway for you. For the meantime, forgive me!

Anyway I have finished one of my two things for Rhonda’s finish-a-long and a couple of other new things too- all cushions for the craft fair I’m just about to head out to this afternoon.

Here’s the finish-a-long one which was me hand sewing a load of hexagons… I will be doing a tute on how I do hexies soon because my method seems to be different to the traditional one and obviously it’s much better 😉

Next is my string cushion which was lots of fun to make. I put a zip in as well instead of my usual envelope back (which I keep doing upside down by the way, I need to sort that issue out!)

Lastly is the Union Jack cushion which I made based on the paper piecing block Just Jack in the Modern Blocks book. It is by Lynne Goldsworthy, aka Lily’s Quilts. If you like that rose fabric, it’s one I bought on Spoonflower here.

If you were hoping for progress on my dog quilt today, may I gently point you towards my Flickr set for it as I won’t necessarily be updating all the time on this in case some of you get bored. I will have another update for the Flickr page very soon as I’ve now washed and darned the thing….
