Today I made this cushion for my mum. I love the poem on it though I have no idea who wrote it. I went to the craft market held once a month at the local leisure centre and happened to stumble across the red hat fabric. I couldn't find any on eBay and had no idea where else to buy some. Lucky I went to the craft market!
I hope it washes ok, the ink is water proof apparently, but I don't have my bubble jet set yet so I don't know how it will hold up!.. or even if it would work any better with it.. I have some dyes coming - sometime - so I can dye my own purple fabric to go with the saying on the cushion!!

The blocks are black background with colourful music note fabric for the bow ties., and is quilted with neon green thread.
It looks a lot better in real life !!

It comes from the book Patchwork Basics 1 and the pattern is by Bev Darby. Hers has teddies in it, but like most quilters, I liked the pattern but not the colours! I use this pattern for all the new babies in my circle of acquaintances, just changing the colour to either suit the babies gender or the amount of one particular colour fabric I have!! It is such a quick and easy pattern to do. I backed it with pink gingham for some reason. Never again !!!! It looks crooked and was quite difficult to get anywhere near straight.
But I did it again on another quilt! and that is another story.

No, I'm not that good, the last one was done 4 months ago!! This one was finished today. I wanted to have it finished by last Thursday Night (Guild night) but it didn't happen. I was hoping to do one a month but I missed last months Guild meeting because my babysitter had a family emergency, and I am slack so this sat in a corner while I thought about it for a while..
