My weekend project

The scrap organisation went too well...Once everything was sorted out and sitting pretty on my shelves I had to go and make something! I have been promising a lady I work with a hexagon cushion for weeks so here was my chance. I pulled my Pat Bravo stash out and after quite a lot of "oohing" and "Isn't this one pretty?" to my very disinterested daughter, she was waiting for her grandpa to come and take her out for lunch so the disinterest is understandable, I decided on the peachy prints from Modern Affair.

I had to have a hunt around for the pattern pieces but once found I was off like a shot!
I will admit here once and for all I can not put zippers in anything to save my life. So the cushion has an envelope back made from, for want of a better description, a very furry fleece fabric that happened to appear one day in my sewing room.
Anyway an hour and a half later (Boy these things are faster than quilts!) I had it finished.

Not the best photo in the world but you get the idea :)

So now it's monday my bookcase with patterns on needs sorting and yet again I have to sort out my scraps!
Hope you had a good weekend and have loads of fun things planned for the rest of this week.

Hmmm scraps!

Well my plan for the weekend is to get the scrap bin sorted out. It's one of those jobs that gets put off forever but once I start I can play for hours!
Quilting tunes this weekend may well be a mix of country with funk and some soul. I've just re-found Old crow medicine show and have a hankering for some truly cheesy Jackson 5 maybe some Jackie Wilson for good measure.
So off to clean out the scrap bin...Wish me luck!

Well I'm here because I joined the Sew Modern Quilt Bee and thought it would be fun to blog my first online Bee. It officially starts in May so I think it'll be quite quiet here until then but feel free to pop back and check I might add some pics of projects I'm working on at the moment.
