Small Makes - Day Three
You might recall that I had a whole lot of ready made HST off cuts from the DS quilt I made. All they needed was trimming. Well, I did start trimming them ages ago but quickly lost interest, as you do. Today I put a new blade in my rotary cutter - and what a difference that makes to HST trimming! - and finished the job. Then I scooped up 64 of them and made a cushion.
I pieced the colours together fairly randomly to make the diamond shapes. Added on a narrow border in white, and quilted it to highlight the diamond shapes created. I'm almost shamed to admit it but I went back to my trusty green corduroy and blue zip combo for the backing. What can I say, it goes with just about everything!
This cushion will go on holiday with us to be given to one of the family members who is hosting us while we are away. Now, I must go and figure out what I shall be making tomorrow.
