Finished in the nick of time

cushion 11.3.16

for Charline’s birthday on Tuesday, though I still have to make the cushion filler.  For the purpose of the picture I stuffed an old cushion inside the new cover.  If I have time I’ll do some more quilting in the lime spaces, as they look a bit bare at the moment.  I have used every scrap of that gorgeous turquoise fabric.

Next project?  Kate in Queensland is making a quilt using teal and cream, as a fundraiser for ovarian cancer support and I’ve promised a block or two.  Never having made a pineapple block, pineapple block I thought this was an ideal opportunity to try, and I found some lovely fabrics at my local quilt shop.  Here they are with the start of a practice piece,  teal pineapple for Kate hoping the teal fits with Kate’s ideas.

Continuing my wind-up towards Napowrimo next month…

Fingers of frost
claw back the onward march of spring ─
season in reverse

    I love those teals you found Viv, especially the one with the little birds. I’ve never done a pineapple block before either so I look forward to seeing how you get on.
