Cushion ......

I did a cushion swap recently and this is the one I made and sent off.....

I think these seagulls are really quite sweet .....


I 'made' the background fabric from small blocks of different light fabrics.... so that and the quilting gives it a bit of texture - pebbles on the ground for the beach... and feathers above...


 the back has an envelope opening with a couple of wooden buttons to fasten....

Alison loves reproduction prints and I hope she likes this modern design using them.....

The pattern for this cushion is from Homespun No 103 Vol 12 No.12 and is a design by Claire Turpin ...

The other project with reproduction prints I am doing is the 9 patch swap.. these are May's blocks ....


...my little pile is growing....


Righto, Gotto Go... it's June now so another set of blocks is required!
