It went together fairly quickly in the end, especially as I decided to do some simple straight line quilting rather than any fancy, complicated FMQ type stuff :)
|Cafe Cushion quilting|
The plan originally was to space the lines evenly around the centre diamond but a slight muck-up (sorry design decision!) early on meant that the spacing was irregular at each side. Fortunately, I actually liked how that turned out so went with it and mixed up the measurements on all of the sides!
The cushion back is an Envelope back with binding as in the pattern, but I am not sure about having an envelope back on such a large cushion. The cushion cover is 20.5" x 20.5" as in the pattern, and I think if I was making such a large cushion again I would go with a zipped or button closure.
I didn't have a big enough cushion insert when I finished this and had to go out and buy one. The cushion inner is 50cm x 50cm to give that stuffed look that I like.
The cushion pattern is from this book
Apart from those minor blips the cover went together really well.
Not only is this a finished project so I can link up to Crazy Mom Quilts
but it is also my first finish for Q3 in
and my first project to link up for the Craft Book link up at
and finally because this project is actually for me
So many birds with one project :)
If I had actually been to Paris on holiday I could even have made it my contribution to the
