It started with a .....


CUSHION
No that's wrong...
It actually started with lots of little squares.
 and many itty bitty seams.
 Which magically became 2 cushions, as is often the case.
Closely followed by OOing and AAHing and the request for a quilt.
More squares and stitching.
Indeed, lots of stitching.
and hey presto...
A matching single bed, size quilt was made.
SNUGGLE-UMPTIOUS!
But our tale has a sad ending, sniff, sniff.
One little cushion was left behind and all alone in the world. (Oh NO!)
So in true 'Bagpuss' tradition Fi gathered it up and took it to her shop.
Just in case someone should come along one day and be in need of pretty patchwork cushion.

The End

There is something so satisfying about patchwork isn't there Fiona, although I do wonder what Martians would think of the idea of cutting up material to fasten together again were they to land here one day. Love the quilt in all its pinkness.

Gorgeous cushions and that quilt looks super cozy not to mention pretty. The lone cushion won't be languishing on the shelf for too long....

Gosh, everything you do is so neat, my work never seems to look so neat, especially my sewing, it was something I never ever really mastered even tho I did lots of sewing when the kids were young.

Oh! It was left behind somewhere, sort of like a coat? How sad. Now the remaining cushion and quilt are separated? I'm sad too.

This is so gorgeous. I am really impressed with people who can do quilting. I keep telling myself to have a go but get worried when it comes to cutting up the material! Your blog is lovely and I am on my way to follow. Take care. Chel x

This is lovely. I've just started cutting patchwork squares to make some curtains using vintage and new fabrics and embroidered linens. Not sure how they will turn out (or whether they will ever get finished) but I shall come back to your blog for inspiration.
