I've been on a mad cushion making spree over the last couple of days!
Besides the ones I showed you here already,
I made another log cabin...
and more patchwork squares!
All four of these have flown out of the shop faster then I could whip them up, I am most pleased!
I will be busy making some more, but I probably will not list them until I get back from my little break next week :-)
I also found time to sew myself a little cushion to keep.
This is a wee 14" cushion, the house block is a pattern from Kumiko Fujita's patchwork 318.
I'm thinking my month in this bee will have 'Home sweet home' as a theme. There are some really cute house blocks in this book. But there are also lots of applique blocks, a combination of both would be lovely don't you think?
I am not sure if this is a worldwide thing, but I think it is.. We get these decorative wall tiles, you know the ones I'm talking about right? They usually have a decorative motif stenciled or painted on them with a corny saying like ' home is were the heart is or 'seize the day' (I mean no offense by calling them corny- if you have a whole collection of them you rock!)
I was thinking of mixing up house blocks with these flowery applique blocks and corny sayings about love and home and family to turn into a large cushion or wall hanging or something.
I still have time to change my mind, what do you think?
Oh and one more thing, you may have noticed (Anna!) I'm
wearing a new Nani Iro skirt in the last two pictures. I will show it
off properly soon!
