You know when you have a plan for the week? And then by the end of the weekend it’s already looking a bit shaky? Well that’s me this week, instead of quilting the Welsh Blanket Quilt I am looking after a poorly child and trying to keep on top of the washing.
But on the plus side I managed to find space to sneak in a bit of machine sewing and then some hand stitching to finish off a project.
A couple of weeks ago while tidying up my sewing space I decided to get on and do something with them; adding another flower so that I could make a square cushion cover:
I added a 2″ border and spent some time hand quilting around the flowers so yesterday it was ready for turning into a cushion cover. I didn’t have any invisible zips so decided to add a zip in the middle of the back with a cover flap.
I finished the cushion with a 2″ wide binding strip which results in a narrow binding which I really like.
I really like how this turned out and that’s it’s finished and off my ‘niggle’ list!
I’m linking this up to this months Le Challenge which has the theme of ‘Space’ so how to make a tenuous link to this? Well, as I mentioned above I found unexpected ‘space’ in my day to get this finished and it’s also going to fill a ‘space’ on our sofa!
