My Patchwork of the Crosses has taken a back seat this weekend.
But that is fine because I have been busy making twenty-five pin cushions.
As you can see they look very flat at the moment - stuffing is next on the list.
I had fun deciding on designs.
These were first - fussy cut motifs fused on and then quilted.
Then onto some scraps from a previous project - they were already pieced into strips.
Now for some simple stripes,
squares and now of to stuff them and close the gap.
They all have a layer of batting on the top side and have been straight line machine quilted.
These are gifts for a group of young people (11 and 12 year olds) in a South
Auckland school that am about to teach to make a quilt.
I am also teaching 20+ staff members at the school to make the same quilt - our
Easy Retro Beginners Quilt and I can't wait to get started.
