A finished summer/autumn cushion

This week-end, I finally finished the Summer Solstice QAL by making a lovely summery/fall-inspired cushion. And what can I saY? Well I love this fluffy new cushion and the lovely warm colors it had to the room.

The single block for the quilt-along finished at 24' with the sashing so perfect for a massive cussion/fllor cushion. I finished the piecing last month just in time for the quilt-along parade on Melissa's blog

 And I was happy to find time earlier in the month to quilt it (without a frame). It made me realised how much harder it is to quilt without a frame!

using different quilting patterns for each of the sections of the block

I have been wanting to try to add pipping to my cushion for a long time so I thought I would take the plonge with the lovely dotty fabric I had for the back. It's not perfect but it turned out OK!
and I inserted a (wonky) zip at the back of the cushion.
2 techniques that I have planned to use for a while but hadn't had a chance! I'll probably use them again as I love the finishing it gives to the cushion, far more professional and neat that the envelope cushion cover.

And this one OPAM and my finished goal for October as well as the first project off my Q4 FAL list.

  3. It's a beauty, and sounds like a wonderful size. I love the quilting you've shown on it. Congratulations on your finish!

  4. I love your color choices for this block pillow. I like the star with the circle in the middle. Nice finish!
