Midi monster wants a herring bone quilt of scraps and this looked like fun, so I just knew I had to give it ago!
A lovely friend of mine had a wonderful birthday last week and she loves green, so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on a smaller project using the ideas on Rachel's blog.
I needed to make my blocks smaller so I opted to cut the foundation paper at 4.5" inches:
I raided my scrap bucket and pulled all the greens. The scraps were cut into varying widths and then sewn onto the the foundation paper.
I then got to play around with the layout of the blocks!
I settled on the this design:
To quilt the design I used an all over flowers with swirls in an all over design as my friend loves gardening and flowers!
I love this cushion! The mix of green scraps is so lovely!
I wasn't able to my friends party, but I hope the cushion lives in happily in my gorgeous friends home!
Now to plan midi's quilt for him!
