Today was a cold and grey day. A bit of a shock really as the temperatures have been very nice the past little while. But it made for a good day to run errands, do the neccesary and - eventually - sew. Which means that I got my latest quilt as you go cushion finished just before I sprinted off on the school run. (I may have pushed my leaving time just a little but!)
As I showed the other day, I pulled all my fussy cuts with a British theme that were in red, white or blue. I then supplemented these with scraps in the same colours and stitched away. The centre qayg panel measures just under 12" square.
A narrow border of navy Kona was then sashed with some white Stof linen. I did a double row of quilting on the white with some red thread to add some interest. The urge was to break out the perle but time constraints dictated otherwise. I backed it with some Metro Living in a lovely red and used a slate grey zip on the closure. The cushion finishes about 18" square.
I love that I had several different fabrics that featured 'London' on them. It is a very British cushion and will be travelling abroad with us to be given as a gift. Now, just a number of other gifts to make and the host gift list can be ticked. Meanwhile there is still the DS quilt to finish, a baby quilt to make, another commission to do, and life to live. Ah well, it all keeps me out of trouble, most of the time.
