Description

20.02.2013:
I've been looking at plus quilts for a while now - I even have a pattern lined up for a jelly roll plus quilt. Just never really had the time.... always other projects to be getting on with.

And today I hadn't planned to buy fabric. But we visited our local quilt shop and they had some in stock!!!! I had to have some and eventually decided on pink and blue rather than green and blue (though I think I'll be back fairly soon!)

And on the way home put the two ideas together - a Colour Me Retro Plus Cushion Cover. And I have just finished piecing. Quilting to follow - maybe next week!

Quite the change of plan from the last update here! My sister-in-law gave birth to a little girl called Ellie-Jo on 15th March - and she is going to be a little tomboy, so this is perfect. I enlarged it to 24" x 36" from the original 20" x 20", basted it with more of the Pure Elements pink on the back and then quilted 1/4" either side of every seam line using a turquoise Aurifil. It's bound with Pure Elements (Clear Water) and is a perfect little quilt for a perfect little niece.

It looks like the pup doesn't want to wait for the cushion although I'm sure he will be much happier once it's inside. Cute cute fabric!!!! And the pattern shows it off well.

Very nice, love the fabrics, been waiting for this line to come out.

Way to go! Love your change in plans and lucky Ellie-Jo. Love the pink back too.

The finish is beautiful! Love the way the quilting shows up on the back. But how do you know already that Ellie Jo is going to be a tomboy? Is she the youngest of a house full of brothers?
