Today I thought you might like to see a wee cushion finish that we've been working on for Bee Blessed.
Back at the beginning of the year when our theme was sampler blocks, Terri kindly stitched us up a host of modern blocks to include in our projects. Among them was the pleated blue and white centre block that you can see on the pic above.
When we saw this block, several of us automatically said how great it would look in a cushion front to really feature its 3D quality to best effect. So, when we had some extra fabrics from a blue and lemon quilt that we are working on (pics in a few weeks over on the Bee Blessed flickr page we hope) Terri's block seemed to lend itself perfectly to becoming a companion cushion for the quilt.
We popped on a border of the remaining squares and made up a similar back from Ruth's lovely courthouse steps block in just the right colours and hey presto! a cushion with decorative and practical aspects. Pretty pleats to look at one one side and and cosy courthouse steps to rest your head on on the other.
I hope Terri and Ruth will think we've done their blocks justice and be glad to know that they will be gifted along with one of the group's quilts shortly.
Thank you ladies!
