Fantastic Fussy Cut

6 Sep

I think this is the biggest English paper piecing project I have finished (so far)!

It started off like this:

I swapped out some fabrics and put some new ones in.  I’d prepared it before I sprained my ankle and didn’t know that it would be the thing that would keep me sane while confined to the sofa!

Rather than it taking all summer I had the EPP finished within a couple of weeks.  I initially chose Kona grey for the background but had a major fail when placing the EPP on it, I cut the spare fabric from behind before I noticed my error.  I didn’t have enough Kona grey left to try again so had to opt for Kona Coal:

I loved Susan’s quilting of hers in the magazine so blatantly copied her idea. I used a pink thread Aurifil 40 weight 2425, I’m really pleased with how it looks:

For the back of the cushion I used some Heather Ross Nursery Versery prints, the purple Confetti Dot by Dear Stella hides the zip closure:

So another cushion for our living room, thanks to Susan for a great pattern (issue 23, Love Patchwork and Quilting).

This project was on my finish along list for the 3rd quarter so I’m delighted to be able to link it up:
