Lil' Twister Cushion

I'm still playing with my Lil Twister  - I made this cushion as a gift for my nephew and his girlfriend who are expecting their first baby in February.

I chose the colours of Daddy-to-be's favourite football team.  They already know it is a little boy.

I kept the machine quilting simple - just echoing the shapes.

I was going to make this a pram cover or a car seat cover but I am crocheting a blanket so decided to make it a cushion instead.  It is stuffed fairly lightly so it is nice and soft.



For the edging I didn't think a frill was appropriate for a little boy so I simply stitched about an inch in from the edge to create a false piping.  first time I've done that and I'm pretty pleased with the result.

It's back to the day job now.
Hope to get some quilting done later.
See you all again soon.

Very cool!! I have yet to use my Twister, but it will happen one day. The fabrics on this are great - Dad is sure to appreciate the football nod.
