I love a quick finish.....

In 2011 I made my youngest daughter her quilt in chocolate colours...


It was made with quite big Disappearing 9 patch blocks......

As there were a couple of blocks extra I used these to practice how I wanted to do the quilting and these quilted blocks have been languishing in the back of my cupboard since then....


this pictures shows the back of the quilted panels  


I still had a nice piece of the backing of the quilt... a charcoal tone on tone in flannel so I used that to make up some pillow slip style backs for the blocks.... 


Now youngest daughter has a couple of matching cushion covers for her quilt....


If you are interested there is more of the quilt HERE

A couple more UFO finishes for me.... yippee... the number is going down!!

Righto, Gotto Go... these colours have got me thinking about chocolate and coffee ..... hmmmmm

Love the quilt and I was just thinking when I saw the blocks you should make cushions to match, but you were a step ahead of me.
