The one that got away

You may remember this little project?!

It fell victim to a chewy puppy last year and sadly didn't make it to my Brit Quilt Swap partner as intended.

I kept the pieces and after some healing time ;-) I unpicked the damaged parts and started to rebuild.

So now it has been hanging out on my sofa for a few months, creeping into the odd photo or two I decided it was time to give it the reveal it deserves.

Epp The Rainbow Cushion


It is hand quilted onto an old remnant of woollen blanket and bound using the cutest ever black pin dot fabric, I love this cushion and I am so glad I {eventually} had the patience to resurrect it.

Next month I am teaching a series of workshops at my lqs on epp, this cushion will be coming along with me, as will the rose star quilt....which I am hoping will be quilted by then!!

Woo hoo, I am so happy you saved this. It is just beautiful and might just be the inspiration I need to try another EPP cushion.

Incredible! I would die if my dog ate my quilting, how awful! Glad you made it work, though, what a happy ending :D
