To Cushion the Blow

From sewing

As my darling friend Rebecca pointed out, I've been dilly dallying with patchwork. Not quite a blanket or quilt yet, but some cushion cases.

I will one day sew a quilt. Hopefully several, but for now, I started small and made some patchwork pillows. The one modelled by my nephew, Max, was made last year. Not great, so you may only see a corner. It was made from the colour scheme of my mom's birdie sling.

I've since made a few more, but this was my favourite. I used a "log cabin" design, which is so easy to do! I followed a tutorial from the first issue of Uppercase magazine, but you can find tutorials anywhere.

I plan to make several more. Whether they are worthy to be shared on my blog is another question...

You are one step closer to quilting. When are we going to start on that adventure together? My quilt is sitting idly by waiting to actually be quilted and bound... but I'm procrastinating. I love the log cabin. It's my favourite patch.
