Our local library had a book sale, and I loaded up…
I cannot resist a new book. Hence small progress with the quilting of the Big Cushion front, but it’s done now. Not the world’s neatest or most even hand quilting, but lovely and textured and nubbly!
It’ll need a 3 inch border all round to fit the cushion pad I have, but that’s OK; I have a very, very pale yellow with a small white dot which gives the impression of rich cream. With this as a border, the cushion colour scheme ties in very well with my grandmother’s flower garden hexie bed quilt and the green bedroom curtains. The back will be the last piece of my favourite lime shot cotton, again with a 3 inch border. I’m not sure what I’m going to bind it all with; it’s more or less asking for a hot pink or orange but I don’t have any in my stash, and I don’t like an aqua binding against the lime background. A bit of thought is required….
One more post, and this project will be done 🙂
