So nearly finished, but it will have to wait until tomorrow. This morning I thought I would finish the cushion cover by lunchtime. After lunch I thought I would have it done before daylight failed. As usual, the work took me about four times longer than I thought it would. There were a few problems along the way, which I should have expected. The highlight of the day was making the buttonholes. Now the only thing I have yet to do is sew on the buttons.
This is all I had left of my favourite skirt, just a few scraps which are now in the bin.
Tomorrow I shall be buying a new cushion pad, and shall put the new cushion cover on as soon as I get it home. I can't wait to see my favourite skirt RIP in its new incarnation.
Here goes for Week 311:-
Many thanks to Frédérique for linking up last week with her Santa in the Woods. If you haven't seen her blog post yet, nip over now and see more.
If you have no free motion quilting to show, feel free to link up and show any project you like. Here are the usual rules, but feel free to ignore them. To keep the original emphasis, however, preference will be given to free motion quilting when featuring projects from the previous week.
If you love free motion quilting, whether you are a beginner just taking the plunge, or you have reached the stage where you can do ostrich feathers with your eyes shut and still achieve perfect symmetry, then please link up.
Remember, FMQ is FMQ, whether your machine was made last week, or it is older than your granny.
Here are the very easy and slightly elastic rules:-
1. Link up with any recent post, ideally from the last week but within the last month, which features a free motion quilting project, whether it is a work in progress or a finish.
2. Link back to this post in your own post.
3. Visit as many of the other participants as possible and say hello in the comments box.
4. The link up will remain open for five days, from midnight to midnight GMT for the long weekend, Friday to Tuesday.
So far quilters from the USA, England, Wales, Australia, Canada, Germany, Holland, New Zealand, France, Macau, Russia, Ireland, Brazil and Sweden have taken part. The
first participant from each new country will get a special mention the following week.
Hi Muv, what a great way to re-use your favourite skirt. I hope that we get to see the finished cushion soon! Take care.ReplyDelete
Hello Andrée, Yes, it's all finished now. I got it done just in time for Christmas.Delete
Hi, Muv. I've been absent in the last year. Mainly because I've been doing a lot of piecing. Now I have to quilt them. I'm going to sandwich a few things so I can get back to FMQ. You work is fabulous!ReplyDelete
Hello Angie, Great to hear from you! I hope you are well. Looking forward to you linking up.Delete
