Firstly I want to thank everyone who took the time to chat about how they did their foundation piecing and whether they liked it or not on my last post. It appears that on the whole, most people love it! As well as that, there appears to be quite a few different ways to foundation piece, not just the traditional or the freezer paper methods. A few of you may have even convinced me to at least give the traditional method a try. Once again I am reminded about how amazing this blogging community is...we have so much information and ideas, tips and hints at our fingertips. I love it!
Ok, so I have stitched up Dan's (Piece and Press) gorgeous cushion using the freezer paper foundation piecing method, and I'm thrilled with it so far. I'm thinking the border will be a darker grey of some sort, haven't decided yet.
This will eventually sit on my couch. My couch has been calling out for new cushions for a long, long time, so this is a good start.
Because I used the freezer paper method to make this cushion, I can reuse the pieces to make another cushion to keep this one company!
I've also finished the hand quilting on my pink and brown Japanese x and + and o quilt.
I love the softness and texture of the quilt when it's quilted with perle 8 threads.
More pink and brown on the back of course!
And the binding had to be brown with hot pink polka dots!
Thank you to everyone who has wished me all the best for my class at the beautiful Treehouse Textiles tomorrow. I'm very excited and will be back with pics! xo
