Thank you lovely people who linked up for the very first Paper Piecing Party last week! Loved seeing what everyone was working on! It was especially lovely seeing people pop by and comment on each other’s projects – don’t we all love comments?! Oh and the winner of the free pattern last linky was Lia of Lia’s Handmades.
So another week, another project right?! Here’s my contribution to the party!
After making my Winter quilt top with the Winter’s Lane fabric, it obviously needed a cushion to go with it. With all those sweet cardinals in trees prints – clearly this was the obvious choice. What better than to use my paper pieced Cardinal pattern (freebie in my shop).
Plus I just love cardinals. We don't have them here but I loved seeing when I spent some time in the US. For this project, I used the leftover layer cake squares from my quilt top to make this little cushion to match.
I pieced the back as well and then just sewed it up and stuffed it full of stuffing.
Now I need to get busy and finish off the quilt top to match and my lounge will be beautifully winterised
PS. You only have a day or two to get your Keep Calm and Press On block made and linked up for a chance at awesome prizes! I’ll be posting the June block tomorrow!
Now it’s your turn for show and tell!
Quick refresher on what the deal is with the Paper Piecing Party (full details here):
* It’s on every weekend here at Quiet Play.
* Link up something you’re working on that’s foundation paper pieced
* Link a blog post or flickr photo
* Visit other links and leave a comment because that’s half the fun!
* I’ll pick one each week to win their choice of a free pattern from my Craftsy shop. Keep on paper piecing ;)
