I had lots of GORGEOUS fabrics leftover from a quilt that I made last year (fabrics are from the Blueberry Crumb Cake collection by Blackbird Designs for Moda) and they were just what I needed for my next project! I've used this pattern "The Waverley Bag" by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley for cushions rather than the bag, and it's always been one of my favourites. I used a beautiful shade of Cottage Garden Thread 418 Blue Heaven - this skein was leftover from the Flowerville quilt that I'd finished earlier this year...
...there are a couple of "patchwork" designs that look great stitched in this soft variegated blue thread. I used DMC threads for the tulips block...
...a few appliqued daisies scattered on the blocks and the main part of the cushion was completed! This will be machine quilted VERY simply as I am running out of time to get this project completed! Thank goodness I'll have a couple of hours sewing at a local quilt group on Monday evening as I need to get it finished ready for delivery on Tuesday!
