Description

Making some progress on my March cushion. Using Constellations to match with my quilt.

Need to figure out borders -- I have some black Essex linen I'm thinking of using.

16/3/14
Borders on with the Essex linen. I think it's going to work great as a compliment to my quilt... I plan to put it on my armchair, opposite my couch with this quilt on and my couch is an Ikea one (Karlstad) with a grey linen like texture on it so they match really well!)

I wish I double-checked Wendy's tips for this though, as I cut my 14" border pieces only to realise they do not fit as the length should have been 14.5" :angry:

Finally put together an envelope backing and finished off the cushion!
