Another cushion !


Yes, I'm afraid it's another cushion from me this week.  I seem to make a lot of them but this one is for my living room.  I'm slowly replacing the ones we have as they are looking a bit 'tired'.

The center is a Jennie Rayment block which I'd started a quilt group a couple of weeks back.

It doesn't look as good as it could becasue the cushion pad is a little small - need to get a slightly bigger one.

Again I used sparkly Guetermann Sulky thread to quilt the black background.

I hand embroidered the blue diamonds with DMC stranded cotton.

I quilted pebbles on the inner border and feathers (of course!) on the outer border.

I have been working on a major project but I am waiting until next week to show you as I will be hosting the linky party for TGIFF!!    Need to have something good don't I ?

M R from Quilt Matters is the hostess with the mostess this week so pop over and see whats been going on.

I'm off to get some serious sewing done today.  See you all next time.

PS  Want a wee giggle ?  Then head over to Quokka Quilts and read Laura's product review - I promise it will make you smile.

I attended a workshop with Jennie when I was visiting in Charlotte NC. What a hoot! She was so much fun...I am still working on finishing the project though!

Beautiful detail work, Rhianon! I'm definitely going to have to try some of that fabric folding -- it looks so cool! :)

What a cool pillow!! I've got a book for some origami quilting that I really have to try out. It'll have to wait until later in the year, though, as it's somewhere in storage until after our move in June. :P Love, love what you did here!
