How can there be more you ask? A friend asked if I would make quilts for her nephews for Christmas to which I promptly laughed and said catagorically NO! I do love her dearly but the quilting of the Dr Seuss quilt was a nightmare, and that was before the drama with the washout pens. So i compromised (as she is a very good friend LOL!) and offered to make her a couple of cushions for her to give to her nephews. So, in a first for me as Christmas is six weeks away my kids tell me, I did not leave it until the last minute and have done them and handed them over yesterday. Phew, that is one thing off my list (well two actually).
So here they are:
One of the good things about this whole project is the material is left over from the quilt, except for the centre panels, the zips and the cushion inserts.
My friend seemed quite happy with them so hopefully her nephews like them too. They are aged two and five I think. She is going to package them up with some cat in the hat books too. A great idea I think.
The other quilt that is being made is coming along nicely (shhh it is still a secret!) and it is being sent away hopefully next week to be professionaly quilted which I am loving the idea of. I will still have to handquilt a section in the middle; something I haven't done before. I have decided that trying to quilt anything larger than a table runner in my normal little sewing machine is a fool's job and so I am excited to see how this goes.
