Posy Pillow*!

* only because Posy Cushion doesn't sound so good!

A slow burner this one, it must have been forever ago that I started basting the DWR pieces from Jessie's shop.  But I have finally finished my pretty little Posy cushion, and I am way too impatient to wait for a more photo-friendly day...


I used some mini-charm packs for both the DWR and for a panel of the background.  It adds a little interest, and meant I could also centre the little Miss and her book on the FQ I had.  I used a couple of solids for the back, I remember not what they are, but they are a flukey near match for the Posy tones, and I used some of my Hadley bundle for the perfect binding.


Fusible fleece on the front panel, and some heavier weight cotton to line the whole cushion, and quilted horizontally in the usual!  It is about 16" square, and is stuffed nicely with an 18" feather insert.  Comfy, I expect - no-one is allowed to lean on it just yet!

So another FAL finish, which just leaves me with the 2 full size quilts.  Let's see if I can get one done, because there is no way the MATO is going to be finished this quarter, or maybe even the next!

  4. That is such a pretty little cushion. Makes me want to sit cross legged in the grass and read... maybe not today, but in July or August. You know what I mean. It's a little spring heart skipper of a cushion.

  15. i would happily cuddle this cushion. Posy is one of my favourite lines and I still have some that I am saving for a day that I am brave enough to cut into it.

  16. Yey well done- do you always bind your cushions? Do you do it by machine? Questions are because I have never used binding on a cushion and am thinking about trying it, should be easier than doing piping any road!

  18. Lovely pillow. I am so into the various techniques for DWRs. Did you applique the pieced rings onto the whole cloth? Love it.
