Batik Heart Cushion with Quilted Feathers

Hello there,
I've had a busy week working on a few projects but my finish for this week is this :

A cushion made from some very pretty batik fabric.   It measures 18" x 18".


I used a piece of dark blue taffeta and appliqued two batik hearts in the center.



I quilted feathers from each corner.


I've decided to try and sell this cushion - details at my Etsy shop.

This time last week I went to the quilt show in Edinburgh where I stocked up with a few goodies.

See the scrapbags at the back of the photo ?  What a treasure trove of fabric.  This is them all folded and most pieces were at least fat quarter sized and there was even some binding all made and ready to go.  What a find.

 I usually post photos of the quilts on show but I am a bit hesitant this year as there were signs up saying no photos to be used without permission,
Luckily, Kay, The Borderline Quilter DID get permission to show the photos so head on over to her blog and have a look at the gorgeous quilts.  This show was an exhibition of quilts rather than a competition.

Just  a reminder before I go that todays TGIFF linky party is over at Laura's blog , Quokka Quilts.
Some nice finishes already posted.
Enjoy your weekend everyone!
