At our last meeting of Monday Modern Quilters we swapped fabric scraps, then someone suggested making something out of the scraps before our next meeting as 'homework'. I was going to say challenge, but we're not really a competitive group!
In the swap I got some fabric off cuts that had already been sewn together in pieces about 5inches wide. I cut them back to 4 inch pieces and decided to make a cushion cover trying out Elizabeth Hartman's 'Honey' pattern from Modern Patchwork.
In the book you cut WOF strips of fabric and sew the white on as a strip. I chain pieced the strips onto scrap pieces before cutting them into triangles.
I think it will make quite a nice cushion when its all done. I am determined to try out some FMQ on this cushion - just need to practise on some scraps first. So, if I present this cushion completed sometime in the future and it has straight line quilting on it, be sure to tell me off!!
