Another birthday cushion!

It’s become a popular present for me to make as a gift, especially when as happened this time, the invitation to a birthday picnic on Tuesday was issued on Saturday…

Luckily, I had a cushion pad to hand and used my stash to make a boy’s cushion. I had a spare twenty minutes yesterday in between little one’s gym and dance classes so that’s when I cut and pieced the front. Then I quickly machine quilted it and took it with me to hand applique the truck. This morning, I added the button wheels and the envelope style backing.  While I did that, my little artist drew a birthday card.

BTW, this book is the inspiration for the cushion. I borrowed it from the library last week and several projects are calling my name…

Mum of 4, I live on the Isle of Sheppey in Kent. I've always sewn but the quilting bug snagged me a couple of years ago and now, with the encouragement of my artist husband, I'm spreading my wings into textile art.
