Other Finishes 2012

Lots of cushions:

I love making cushions and seeing the faces of my friends and family when they receive their unique gifts. All my cushion tops are 'mini-quilts' (pieced, basted and quilted) so I get to practice and play with new fabric all the time and create lovely things in just a couple of hours :)
