pinwheel cushion

 I finished the cushion that I blogged about here. It is number two on my Finish Along list.
Zoe chose the fabrics for this cushion and made the cushion top using the fast and easy pinwheels tutorial by Jenny Doan of The Missouri Star Quilt Co. The pink fabric used for the pinwheels and backing is Lecien's Folk Tale Flying Pixie Girl. The other pinwheel print is from Australian designer Sarah Fielke's On The Pond range.
I was responsible for quilting and constructing the cushion cover. Which is why it took so long to finish. But doesn't it look nice now that it is done! It is approximately 16" (41cm) square.

I love a covered, zippered back and always use Svetlana's tutorial. She makes it so easy!

I also completed some bee blocks which have now been mailed. I really like the feeling of mentally ticking these off my list.
 This is our last day of the school holidays. Oh how I have enjoyed them!

I will be back to show you some of the crafting we have been doing during the last two weeks. Some was planned and some was impromptu.


  1. What a cuddly cushion! I love all your bee blocks!! The black yellow and grey one is particularly striking!!

  2. All Sew lovely. Glad to see that Zoe is still sewing HST. : ) I need a little house quilt. Your little house block looks fairly easy to construct. Janita

  3. I love your pillows! I checked out the zipper tutorial, which is so well written, and will definitely give it a try with my next pillow! Your bee blocks look fantastic!

  4. Hi Jeneta love your new cushion and those blocks are awesome,well done my friend xx
