A Birthday Keepsake

Cushions seem to be my “thing” in recent times!  And that’s ok!  I adore making quilted cushions, and love that my customers want me to make them!  One such customer messaged me Thursday night and put in a request for TWO!  This is the first…..
Personalised Cushion for Ellah
The only specifications I had were: Girly fabric and personalised with name and birth date.  Easy!  I have had this Sarah Jane fabric sitting on my shelf awaiting the perfect project.  I’ve cut out 6.5″ squares, and knew I’d hit the jackpot when I saw the Mirror print – perfect for personalising!

I also had some of the fabulous border print leftover from some little frocks I made last year.  It works brilliantly as a cushion back!

I did a simple meandering quilting pattern using Aurifil #2410.

and then for the name and birth date, I’ve used Aurifil #1100 and free motioned the writing.  It was just a little bit tricky, due to the size of it, but I’m pretty pleased with the outcome! 
Now to get a start on the second cushion ordered.  It’s going to be pretty darn cute!  Think paper piecing and woodland creatures.
Have a great weekend!
