I can't remember why I choose log cabins, but I do remember thinking that I didn't need to think about it any more because log cabins were perfect. I took advantage of a nap time and pulled some more fabrics from my stash, cut all the strips I needed, fussy cut the centres, and pieced.
I got cocky with the piecing - blocs 1 and 2 were fine... block 3 required major surgery - the kind where you need to repiece a section but you really don't want to unpick all the other seams around it. And block 4 only narrowly avoided similar surgery. That third blocks still isn't perfect, but you have to look really closely to spot it!
I hand quilted this cushion cover, just because. It's nice to have some hand quilting on the go and I didn't have any, so I pulled out the perle threads and colour matched. I didn't have a good green, but found a surprsing match in quite a minty green (not the lime green I had been after). The bright purple-y pink was a no hoper... it turns out that the Finca thread is really aimed at crochet, and it turns out fuschia pink isn't popular for this... I used 3 strands of embroidery thread. In hindsight I should have used 2 strands but you live and learn. Maybe a Finca colour chart should be added to my next shopping list!
I've backed the cushion with the remaining AMH flannel which I picked up in an IG destash and already used to make a hooded towel for Mia. Although there's not yellow on the front of the cushion, the pink is spot on and it's so snuggly!
The finished cushion is " by "
The fabrics used a nice mix from my stash including Summersville Spring, Modern Nuetrals, Figures by Zen Chic, some Kona solids, Art Gallery Natural Elements and Art Gallery Reminisce. The woodland animal fabric is from Timeless Treasures.
The quilting is in #16 Finca Perle Thread
And just in time it's a finish for A Lovely Year of Finishes
