So I thought I'd give foundation piecing a go and see if I was any good at it. I wanted to make a personalised cushion to go with this quilt. I made up my own letters and got started with some scraps.
Usually I go with appliqué letters or embroidery to personalise a quilt or set but today I was feeling adventurous... the rebel that I am! :P
Now I'm pretty sure a moderately experienced person would have had these 3 letters done in maybe MAX an hour. For my first attempt it took me... well I'm kinda a little embarrassed to share... almost all morning. Yup I kept finding holes where the fabric slipped and I had continued sewing. But with my trusty unpicker I kept at it until I had this to show for it.
Not bad I think. Just really glad it was a simple name. Boy I would have been stumped if I had to do any name much longer. But I'm hoping I might stick at it and one day make a couple of these...
Lets see how that goes... roll eyes!
I've also been googly eyed over these fabrics. This is California Girls by Fig Tree & Co. These are just the blues and beige (the green is from my stash) but my oh my this is a pretty collection!!
Another cushion in the making! ;)
