Linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Month Goal.
This month I want to make a cushion – (pillow) for a Christmas gift. I have purchased Elizabeth Hartman’s Lisa the Unicorn pattern and am set to go. Well not quite because a 26″ cushion is a little big for the small house my intended recipient – Scarlett lives. So some Maths is involved. I have to halve all the measurements, and that involves subtracting then adding back an half inch plus renaming fractions etc. The retired teacher in me is wishing I still had a class, I’d present the page to them and have them solve this little practical and meaningful task. Yes people, maths is relevant!
I have decided to make a rainbow unicorn, will put a small border round it to make it up to 16″ – quilt it, then make a backing, hopefully with a zipper in the back, and if not just an overlap. I think I’ll follow Sherri McConnell’s you tube video on that bit.
Then buy an inner and hopefully one cushion made in November. I intend making two more but if I find my way around this one, a dog and a dinosaur cushion will appear next month!
I have picked out some fabric from my stash, and starched as some small pieces involved.
