Birthday cushion

My two oldest girls came up with a plan to commission me to make there friend Alex a Green cushion for his birthday .

Miss 10 came up with the idea that she would clean up all the sewing mess. While Miss 9 would make me a cuppa or four .As many as I needed while sewing .hehehe.

I Love that they both worked together to come up with this plan. Usually they are fighting !!

Both girls chose the fabric and gave me a rough idea of what they wanted me to sew design wise.

Glad to report both girls approve of the cushion ! . I just need to trim off the excess thread bits where I had to unpick at one stage.
Wrap up the cushion and wait and see if the birthday boy loves it ......Bring on Sunday.

Happy Crafting

x plus mug rug

I love all those x plus quilt blocks and gorgeous scrappy quilts made from that block. I wanted to try out the x plus block for my self. I made a Mug rug , using mainly Tula Pink fabrics and  teaming it with some text fabric.
I want a huge quilt made using this block ! .

Happy Crafting
