My youngest daughter loves Marvel comics and books etc, and when she recently saw this Marvel fabric by Camelot Fabrics, she thought it would be brilliant made into extra large cushions for her room when she's back at university in a few weeks. So I've been working with these funky fabrics by Camelot Fabrics, that we bought from The Cheap Shop in Triptree a couple of weeks ago. I'm really out of my comfort zone with these, but sometimes a mum has to do what a mum has to do! I must admit I was having a lot of fun playing around with a selection of Aurifil threads and Mettler threads in co-ordinating colours, quilting a grid and a few curvey lines too...
...the backs have been completed with an enclosed zipper and the edges have been finished with bright red single fold binding. These are 20" square and filled with a plump cushion pad. When I came home from work this evening, my daughter was propped up in bed with them, reading a book, and gave me a thumbs up - so job done!
