A Finish!

After a stop for a zip at the weekend, my hand quilted cushion is finished. Happy Me.

 It's a lovely sunny edition to the pile on the sofa, warding of the overcast autumn outside.

When making the back I measured twice, cut once and realised I shouldn't try measuring anything while chatting to the kids. I had a nice square of fabric, 2.5 inches too small, and not enough fabric to cut another. Thankfully I did have a nice selection of greys to choose from (Simply Solids had a lovely sale not too long since), so it was a quick fix.

Clearly I am in need of sunny colours this month as I've moved onto using a moda scrap pack in oranges I'd had no idea what to do with.

I'm thinking dolls quilt or yet another cushion for this one - a local women's running a handmade charity auction to raise fund for Chrone's Disease and I though I'd contribute something. I am nervous making something intended for people I don't know, but enjoying the pace of the EPP!
