Today I'm sharing a project I finished nearly two months ago - I've been enjoying it selfishly so it is time to share the love...
It is the 'Garden District' pillow/cushion from 'Pillow Pop' by Heather Bostic. This pattern is by Casey Yoder ('Little Miss Shabby') and it is a stunner of a design.
I used a variety of blues for the curves and a linen blend as the background. The design is cleverly pieced and almost appears like a double wedding ring block. I'm so impressed with it that I think I might make a DWR in similar colours for our bed. The squares were quilted in the ditch and then hand quilted using variegated perle cotton in curves.
The back using a strip of 'Madrona Road' and the same linen. The edges have been bound. I had never done this for a cushion before but it was exactly like binding a quilt.
This is my third project from 'Pillow Pop' and I have plans to work through the book with the sew-along on 'ThreadBias'. Two of my other projects are here and here.
I'm linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts for 'Finish it up Friday' again - see you there!
