Pinwheel Cushions

Sewing:


I was looking through my latest fav home and design mag and saw these great pinwheel cushions. Nice bright bold colours and they looked amazing - but they were over $120 each - which is just crazy!!!! 

So I thought I'd just make some for myself!


These are so simple to make. Each cushion consists of 4 half square triangles (HST) and I just used a variety of bright bolds and greys I had in the cupboard already.

For the back just use Em's simple no-zip cushion tutorial if you don't feel like putting a zipper in!

These really brighten up my spare room.

Happy sewing!

A Little Bit of Zig Zag Sunshine

Quilting: 



More baby quilts! I love them for a thousand reasons....

1.     they are quick
2.     they are so cute
3.     I get to use all lovely fabrics and
4.     they are quick ;)

To make this quilt I used up a few more ‘leftover’ fabrics from my illustrious mega zig zag quilt I am making myself and is now sitting quietly neglected in my sewing cupboard.

This was really quick to make - I made the entire thing in a morning (minus the hand sewing for the binding..)

It was a gift for friends who live in North Queensland little bub so I thought a nice bright yellow and white would be lovely!

Machine quitling was simply following the zig zag pattern - efective and quick and most importantly not taxing on my brain!
