I've been busy making a pillow for a swap I joined, in my usual style I've made it a lot bigger than it needed to be.....I'm not good at small.
I'm considering making a smaller version to post overseas? not sure how this one will go in the post?
I've been making a few zig zag quilts lately and I usually prefer to make them from half square triangles, I like the shape and width of the zig zag.
I saw these tiles in Italy and I was looking at some Missoni designs - love Missoni.
I decided to give a different technique a whirl.
|Once I worked out my angle and cut a template it was easy. I like that I can vary the width of the zig zag. |
I'm already looking at other material combinations and trying this pattern out again. I think its very Missoni-ish
|I also finally got my spoonflower order of new colours and used the mustard numbers fabric on the back.|
|Cushion Back - Mustard Numbers Fabric|
|Liberty & Mustard Numbers|
|here you can see a little tiny bit of a quilt that will be in the Dec/Jan 2011 issue of DownUnder Quilt|
|finished cushion size is 75cm X 75cm|
