Quick Stash Present...

The friend I sit next to at work, celebrated a big birthday this weekend, and she wanted to keep it low-key.

So I made a low-key present.

I had come across a small sample pack of Modern Folkloric from my FQR2014 goodie bag whilst tidying over Christmas, so supplemented with a few more co-ordinating prints, I was sorted…


I have no idea if this will clash horribly with her interior decor and reside in the spare bedroom for eternity, or until the next charity collection, but I am going on theory that it's the thought that counts.

I fused the top to Vilene H640 and quilted with Aurifil 50wt 2021; simple but effective.

It is not my usual colour scheme, but I like it.  The whole cushion came from stash, which makes me like it even more!

  5. Ah and there it is - Modern Folkloric, I like it. But I'd probably also have the thoughts too about her taste and interior decor which is why I sometimes don't bother!

  6. I really like this, simple but stylish. Most people are just thrilled with a hand made gift anyway. I have a January birthday too and the last thing you want just after Christmas is another box of chocolates or toiletry set. x

  9. I can't see this not fitting in anywhere. It is lovely, and low key so adaptable to any decor.
