My Garden Finally Finished!

It's only been almost 3 years in the making but
I am happy to say I have completed
My Garden by Lynette Anderson.....
It started out as a wall hanging project but I opted to make
 it into a European cushion cover for
the daybed in my sewing studio....
I love the colours of the fabrics in this and the gorgeous
 hand painted buttons finish each of the
nine blocks off beautifully...
Many hours have been spent on this little project,
 sometimes the smaller projects take
more time than whole quilts....
I scored this lovely linen doona cover
 at Recollections the other day.....
Reduced drastically because they couldn't find
 the pillow case and perfect for my daybed.....
Very cosy spot for sitting and stitching....I love it!
I have another European cushion to cover and a smaller round
 cushion as well, I am thinking I would like to use these
fabrics and lined for one of those but have not
completely decided on a design yet....
Until Next time, Happy Stitching
 
Kate

Your day bed is looking so beautiful - you won't want to leave that room. The cushion is really lovely.

If you are going to Nundle, take the pillow for show & tell. It'd be good for Lynette to see her pattern used another way.
Go back to Recollection, they will have found the pillowcase just after you left. It'll be cheap too, no doona cover. :-)

Great idea to make it as a cushion-- looks stunning. The day bed has come together well with all the cushions and linen sheet.

Looking great - all the cushions go so well and My Garden is really gorgeous.
Clever trick with the iron cord too.
