Description

As some of you know I am busy making a 40th quilt for my sister. I know it won't be complete in time for her birthday and I don't want to give her nothing or have to tell her I am making something. So yesterday I quickly sewed a cushion slip using the same fabrics that the quilt will be in. That way she has no idea something bigger is on it's way. :smile_cat:
19 February 2013 Well I spoke to my sister and she loves her cushion cover. She loves the colours and the fact I made it for her. So isn't she going to be surprised when she finally gets the quilt to go with it?

What a great idea! May have to do some thinking along these lines as I am not sure my sister's 60th birthday quilt will be done in time!

Wonderful fabrics and what a great idea!

I'm having a remedial moment but is this for a pillow form? OR will it be for a seat cushion? Whatever it's for it's so cute and a great gift to put her off the path. When she gets the quilt she's going to flip!

Love your fabric but I am with Terryt not sure what it is for.

Terryt1955 it's for a cushion. It is 15" square so she can use it on her sofa or her bed.

Quilt455 thank you. It is a 15" square cushion cover, which she could use on her sofa or bed.

She is going to love it and will be so surprised when she gets the finished quilt.

Is the quilt in teh same cheery colours?
I like the two stripes at the sides where a block would start.

This is great! Love the colors!

Strandkorbtraum yes it is. It is on my profile under Kirstens birthday quilt if you want to see. Had to do the blocks off kilter like that as they weren't all the exact size and I thought this way you wouldn't notice.
