And I can show you. And it is completed before it's deadline of tomorrow, when the recipient shall receive it for her birthday. One cushion, which I hope makes the birthday girl happy. Helen gave her seal of approval on the 'quilt as you go' panel while it was in construction, so I think I'm okay here. But, why oh why, when you ask a child what her favourite colour is does she always say purple? Do children instinctively know this is the colour we all have least of in our stashes? Is it a conspiracy?
Despite nice purple fabrics being a rare commodity around here, I am pleased with the fabrics I managed to pull. I made the quilt as you go panel 16" square and then put a dark purple Kona solid around it to frame it and accentuate the purples that were in there. I backed it with green corduroy, with a simple envelope closure.
Now just need to pop out and purchase an insert so I can remove one of my own cushions from its insides, and find a gift bag big enough to fit it in. Job done!
