Nothing if not predictable ...
It was always on the cards that there would be a cushion to sit atop my new quilt. It is the best way to use up the scraps from a bigger project and I wanted to eek out the Flea Market Fancy love as much as possible.
I decided on making the back-to-front version of the quilt block by using the plain white as the flower.
It gave me lots of scope to keep playing with my perle threads for the hand-quilting. There is something extraordinarily satisfying about a simple running stitch, both in terms of actually doing it and the finished result.
So my bed now has a summer look, and one that I am extremely happy with. Although with this wonderful warm spell, the quilt is being thrown off with abandon!
