Log Cabin Love!

Click here to enter my Pearl Bracelets blogiversary giveaway.  Giveaway closes 26th Dec.


In part 2 of the 'Cushion Drive for No.1 Daughter', I got the 24" cushion finished.

Shannon's Floor Cushion 002

I purposely made this one in the same Log Cabin Circles block that I made her 18th birthday quilt in, and backed it in the same Amy Butler fabric.

Shannon's Floor Cushion 004

The quilt was long arm quilted in beautiful connecting hearts.  Sadly lack of skill and time prevented me from attempting the same on the cushion.  So I went with an organic repeating swirls pattern!

Shannon's Floor Cushion

This cushion, and the other 2 I've made her, are all wrapped up and ready for the big day!

Only problem now is, they are way too big to fit under the tree!!

Still a few more presents to make, but I'm not panicking (much!).

Update: Some of you may be interested to know that my daughter was offered a place at Derby Uni next year, after her 4 hour interview last month!  Thank you all for your well wishes for her. Jxo
