I’m late WIP-ing today because I really wanted to get this cushion finished. It’s the result of my experiment yesterday (blogged here). I like the shapes but if I do this again I’ll definitely use solids or fabrics with very small pattern repeats. Since it was all a bit experimental anyway I thought I’d also try a shaped border. I’m not really in love with how it turned out but it was interesting to try some different things and I might use these techniques again in something else.
My favourite part is the back!
I also finished this little 5″ x 7″ piece (blogged here) and the trip-a-long is now a flimsy (here).
So two finishes and one project in still progress.
Now I’m off to visit Lee and see what everyone has been sewing.

Hi Janine! Your pillow came out so beautiful! I love your trick to make that effect – like waves of folded fabric! x Teje
I love your pillow!
Why is it that we often prefer the backs of things?? Good to experiment and try something different!

I love the pillow!
Love, love, love it, Janine! The effect is almost curved. Very cool!
I haven't read your other post yet, but I love your pillow! I think the effect in solids would be very striking.

What fabulous finishes!!
wow, How beautiful! I love it blog
That pillow turned out so cool! I love what you did with it. Would definitely be a fun technique to play with! Love those dolls, too. I might have to learn how to make little sewn dolls…
I've just spent a lovely 20 minutes catching up, you have been busy! I love the 5×7 and the sliced blocks came out really well, I like the scrappy trip – put it away for a while to 'mature' thn you'll fall in love with it again! The book looks very exciting, hope it inspires you :-)
