That’s a wrap – well, ok, a cushion …

Hurray, finished the cushion I started at the weekend! It just needed a zip to close it (and a quick refresher on how to insert a zip, thanks to the sewing machine manual!) and then, voila, one cosy cushion ready to take up a spot on the sofa.

I’m quite bitten by the free motion applique bug, I’ll have to have a look at what else I can use this on – maybe some cushions for the garden furniture which is sadly neglected and not so inviting to sit out on in the summer – I’m sure a few cushions would make all the difference (I can already see my husband rolling his eyes at the thought of more cushions but, hey, you can’t deny they make any chair look much more appealing!) Maybe with some appliqued flowers / garden pots / trowels – that sort of thing – definitely with more lettering, though – that was great fun!  

The back of the cushion just uses bigger scraps of the fabric I used for the lettering on the front. Really simple. Reminds me a bit of neapolitan ice cream – not sure why. Maybe it’s just because it’s dinner-time!

So, onto the next project –

I Love Kate Spain’s fabrics – so vibrant and colourful, and the Central Park range is just gorgeous! This quilt will be for a new baby but shhhh, it’s a surprise 🙂
