It's so good to be back in my sewing room after the summer holidays.
I have so much to work on I don't know where to start!
Decided to go with a little ring cushion I promised my friend I would make for her wedding.
I thought a quilted heart on satin would be nice but a practice run was in order first.
Back to the sewing machine.......
Attempt no 3
Again my plumes are going the wrong way :(
Much happier with my plumes in this one but again the space in the center is ugly!
Back to the machine....
Finally on my 5th attempt, I produced something I was quite happy with. This time I marked a small heart in the center of the bigger heart and this helped me keep a nice shape.
Phew - I was hours working on these.
I made 2 of the samples into minature cushions for my girls.
Next day, I quilted on satin for the ring cushion. Everything went great until I realised the wadding ( a thick polyester) I had used made unsightly bumps under the satin..........
Today, I'm going to do it again but use a superior quality hobbs heirloom 80/20 wadding, probably a couple of layers as I want the heart to look puffy.
Hopefully I'll be back soon with a finished product.
Enjoy your day
