Piped cushion cover that is. One of the ladies in my quilting group is a sewing teacher and when she offered to run a workshop on how to get that professional piped edge on a cushion I was the first to put my hand up. That edging is something that I have admired for sometime and I can now see why they are just so much more expensive than just a plain edge. They are very fiddly and time consuming but I am pleased with the result which is below.
The second cushion that I have recently made is another one of the pleated cushions. It was a gift for our DIL's mothers on her 60th birthday. I chose the colours for this one based on the outfit she wore to our son and DIL's wedding.
And last but not least is another tabletopper that I made recently as a "hostess" gift for a friend who was hosting a reunion dinner for a group of us who have known each other for over 40 years and in some cases a lot longer than that. We all went over separate ways due to getting married, moving away from the area, having families and work. We met up again around 5 years ago and now make it a twice a year reunion to catch up with each other. She loves butterflies so when I saw this fabric I knew that it would be going to a good home.
I have also been doing some secret sewing - more on that later.
I hope to be back soon with some lovely autumn photos. In the meantime happy sewing.
