Cushions & Quilts


Purple hearts a plenty today.  I attended my second workshop at Beecrafty taught by the talented Sarah to make this lap quilt. I'm having a purple faze can you tell! You can't really see but the hearts are appliquéd on using blanket stitch.


I used one of Astrid's gorgeous & generous free digital designs to make this heart label that I sewed to the back of the quilt.

Next the cushions! I wanted to make some cushions in a similar style to the quilt and found a lovely pattern at the Bramble Patch and attempted a bit of hand quilting. Now I just need to stop Dylan wiping his dirty paws on them!

Have a lovely crafty day, think it's going to be another warm one.xx

WOW! I am turning green with envy here Paula - I adore patchwork - I did a day workshop nearly 10 years ago and haven't gone back to it since (lack of confidence) I WISH I could make patchwork as gorgeous as this. My house would be filled with cushions and quilts! Lots of love Laura xxxxxxx
