V and B's Wedding Cushion Covers - Done!

Thank goodness they are finished.  These have been a bit of a nightmare, not least because of the tight deadline I had to get them ready.

The offending article referred to in my last post:

Really, was there any need for that to happen?  Turns out yes, there was, because it taught me a lesson and out came the unpicker. I feel another Every Day's a School Day post coming on.

In other news I have spent my morning Blog Hopping and having a look at all the blogs scheduled for this week:

Friday 14th June
Julie @ Jolie Maxtin
Melissa @ Melia Mae Quilting
Adrianne @ On The Windy Side
Molli @ Molli Sparkles
Laura @ Little And Lots
Valerie @ Between Quilts

Excellent and inspiring work on show.  It just makes me want to spend my afternoon sewing, but alas I can't.  Why?  I AM GOING TO SEE THE STONE ROSES!

Plum and June


  1. What kind of batting did you use? I am wondering if the batting is partly the reason the quilting turned out wonky and you struggled a little. I think the cushions are, in the end, very nice, and will be a great gift--and I'm glad you had a learning experience! (Shoot, I have them all the time. I HATE when fabric gets pleated under my walking foot like that when I am quilting.)

  2. Those are great pillows. AND you went to see the Stone Roses - color me jealous!!!
