Rainbow Squared [a finish]

I love this finish!

I smile every time I look at it! It started off with no real plan when I was making Mia's cat quilt. I cut pieces from over 100 different fabrics, and whilst I had them on the cutting mat, I also cut a 2.5" square of each. Once done I laid them out to have a look, added the dark reds, browns and blacks and decided to sew them together exactly as they were.

I hand quilted the cross hatch - picking the colour thread was the hardest part: white was too stark, turquoise was tempting, but with some help from my Mother-in-law I picked a very pale pink.

The back of the cushion is a dark blue print from Simply Colour by V and Co. which I found reduced earlier this year.

I finished this last week and Mia and I have spent the weekend arguing over whether it is Mummy's cushion or Mia's cushion - she's gradually coming round to my way of thinking!

This is another finish from my Q4 Finish Along list!

Projects that just evolve can be very satisfying - no wonder you smile each time you look at your beautiful cushion 😀
