Deciding that it is high time I crack on with my Quarter 4 Finish-A-Long goals I started with the easiest remaining finish on my list in the hope of motivating myself towards the others.
The skateboard cushion just needed a little quilting and a backing and voila!
A cushion fit for a boy!
I added some outline quilting around the boards and a little bit through the board designs to finish it up and there is a simple enclosed zipper in the back to keep it all nice and tidy. I forgot how a filled cushion changes the shape of a design by rounding it out a little so, with hindsight, perhaps the skateboards themselves would have displayed better on the cushion if I'd made them a little smaller and had a bit more background. Still, I cannot imagine the intended recipient with look at it this critically since he's only 9!
So, that's tick no 2 off my list. Onwards!
