Quilt for Ron

Here is a quilt that I made for Ron.   I bought the fabric back in 2009.   It's called Hemming House by Moda and in the form of a layer cake which is 40 10" squares.    I just loved the colours.  The backing is in black and I have attempted to hand quilt the corners in a blue and yellow variagated thread but it hasn't come out too well.   You can see it on the black tho!.    The border is made up of the left over 10" squares cut in half.     It took me a while to decide which design to do until I came across a class by Janet at Sleeping Bear Crafts.   I think the design is called In a Box or something like!   I have made a few quilts at Janet's classes.  The other quilts are only tops at the moment.   One day I will get them finished!!!!   

I also wanted to show you this gorgeous cushion made for me by my friend Linda.   It goes perfectly in my lounge.   She gave it to me on my birthday and as it is her birthday today (happy birthday Linda) I though I would show it to you.     I do have the pattern and have said loads of times that I would make it but not actually got round to it yet.   Story of my life!

thanks for stopping by.
