Wow a Christmas present completed already

patchwork and quilting
 Way back here my Mother in Law decided to try making a quilt. It was gorgeous but when she finished I think that was it!! So I was the receiver of scraps. I have been pondering for ages about what to do. In the end I made two cushion covers to go on the spare bed with the quilt she made.

I do hope that she likes them! I am trying to branch out and do different quilting. So am quite pleased with the result on these. It is so much easier to practice FMQ on small pieces! Will have to do more.

Two cushions ready for Christmas

  1. Yay for you! Nothing like a happy Christmas present completed early!

  2. Lovely cushions, you are getting well sorted for Christmas, which I guess is just around the corner!

  3. Well done!! That's great organisation!! The cushions look great, and a good way to practise the fmq-ing, too.

  4. Great choice of quilting design for the cushiopns. Really makes it stand out. Beautiful

  5. Nicely done! Using scraps, trying new designs, AND a Christmas present done in August: way to go!

  6. Lovely cushion, like your quilting!

  7. Very pretty and nice fmq too!

  8. I think that's a great idea to do with her scraps! I'm sure she will love it. I bought my mother fabric, didn't get sewed what I had intended, but showed her the fabric last Christmas. She decided she would like to have pillows from it...guess what she's probably getting this Christmas?! Haha, I know, I'm terrible, but there will be pillows... Hopefully by the festive season 😊 I can't believe I'm basically giving the same present twice, but she'll think it's funny, too. You should be so proud to actually be getting Christmas presents done!
