Finally _ Something To Show You

To be completely  honest, this is something I made ages ago but I can finally show you, and it feels so good to be able to do a blog post that is all things quilty.


This QAYG cushion is featured in the latest issue of Fat Quarterly - Issue 18 Zakka.

Unlike all my other QAYG cushions, and despite it being a commission, this cushion is for me. I love it and I'm keeping it. It's alike the song from The Sound of Music - My Favourite Things. Heather Ross, Aneela Hoey, Denyse Schmidt, a kerchief girl, a little bit of Flights of Fancy and a snippet of Farmdale blossoms, some sewing text, etc. This cushion is me through and through.

Add in some perle hand stitching, a corduroy backing and a contrasting zipper, and it's even more in my happy place.


It's been hiding out in my sewing space like it couldn't be used until the FQly issue had been published, or something silly like that. But now it is free to be squished and squashed, plumped up again and tossed around. All within reason obviously.


Sorry, I had to put in another photo, just because I could. So, so happy to be able to show you this one finally.
