Cushions, cushions, cushions


With Canada's 150th anniversary coming up, my friend, Karen @Sugar Free Quilted Designs, set to work to design a quilt block.  She asked me to test her pattern and I happily said yes.  I took her paper-pieced block design and sewed it up to resemble a flag and made a cushion.  She has since revised her design to make it even better.  If you would like to try sewing one up for Canada Day, you can order it here







Here's another cushion I made...from someone else's scraps that I saved from the trash!  Alison Glass "Insignia" scraps!  I couldn't resist! I donated this cushion to #87Pillows, a charitable initiative spearheaded by my friend, Jeanette.  This is the second year for this project.  The goal is to collect enough handmade cushions to give to each resident of a local nursing home, something to brighten up their space.  If you would like to participate you can get in touch with me for details.  


I made these from selvedges that were gifted to me by an Instagram friend.  

I am linking up with The Needle and Thread Network.  A Canadian linky party.  Stop by and check out what's happening.
