Butter Churn - finished

Actually I had planned a part 2 before the finished post, but once the blocks were pieced this little project came together a lot quicker and easier than I had thought. The top was all done by bedtime last night



Finished it measures 16" - and in that square there are 284 little pieces - yikes! As I mentioned I wanted to make another cushion for the sofa, and this is how it turned out



For this one I quilted a quick and simple loop d'loop meandering. It is backed it with a neutral fabric and turned and stuffed through one of the sides rather than making a pocket at the back. I then tied the centre and added a button covered with a scrap of one of the fabrics I had used in the patchwork.

Happy girl :o)

E'stupendo, mi piace tantissimo...
se non sbaglio dici che l'hai fatto con ritagli di tessuto...
è incredibile...l'effetto ottenuto mi lascia a bocca aperta....

It's beautiful - great design and great colors. And the fact that it is a pillow makes it practical as well as pretty.

Oh my gosh would you look at THIS?! Wow, Anne Ida - this is really pulls your eyes in and asks them to stay for a good long visit. I know I had to look more than once before I could leave a proper comment. The detail is amazing and the button in the middle is just perfect.
