54 2.5" squares were cut last night. It didn't take long to piece them together, and sew a 6.5" wide strip of linen into the mix. Then out came the water soluble pen and the cookie cutters. They make excellent templates.
The key element in this design is the water soluble pen, as I never, ever stitch where I write on letters. I always think I know better once the needle is being pulled through fabric. This particular cushion cover-to-be will need a good old soak in water to get all the pen markings out!
I'll do that right after I finish machine quilting the squares. One step closer to having all the Christmas presents made. Monday is the deadline for posting to Canada. Eeeek!
