Another day,another cushion top.

I was so pleased with my paper pieced cushion top in Amy Butler fabric that I decided to make another in a completely different fabric-  in 2010 my daughter and me went to the Lancaster Quilt Museum, PA, and she bought me a set of fat quarters in Civil war style fabric designed and made for the museum. I used them to make my parents some log cabin cushions this year, and decided to use the same fabrc for a pieced cushion.

As I didnt get round to a pre xmas blog, here are the other cushions I made 

And finally a little bit of colour to brighten up the grey and gloomy days! These are some pin cushions I made for gifts and just because I like making them.....

I am thinking it is about time I got some things into my Etsy shop which has been dormant for a long time!!


  1. The cushion front you are making looks lovely - I really like the colour combinations and the design too. I bet the recipients were happy with their pincushions - so sweet!

  2. Just gorgeous..have chanced upon your lovely blog via used-to-bees! Lizzie

  3. Thanks for your comments Alix and Lizzie - I actually follow both your blogs, which are amazing.

  4. Wow! What do you mean you're a jack of all trades and master of none? Your quilting skills are amazing. I'm in serious awe! Love your pincushions too, oh and those pretty birds you made in a previous post. I'm off to look at the tutorial. Xx

  5. Thanks For your lovely post Loo- I see so many wonderful things on the blogs, I have so much to learn, and I am constantly inspired by what I see can be achieved .
    The birds are very addictive, I warn you!! My living room is full of them!

  6. Hi there I love this block!
    I've not seen it before.
    You seem quite hooked on paper piecing which is brilliant!!

  7. Hi Clare- definately hooked- I foiund the pattern in an old patchwork book picked up in a charity shop. I love the way you can get such different looks depending on the fabric !The modern Kaffe fasset one looks completely different to this civil war rero look.
