Mini Quilt Monday.... A Cushion?

This is not really a mini quilt, it is a cushion, but you wouldn't really know that unless I told you, would you? And it is no longer a cushion now, I am converting it to be a mini wall quilt! I'm dragging it out for Mini Quilt Monday.

I sewed it ages ago, before I started blogging, so at least 4 years ago. If I remember correctly from a pattern from Australian Patchwork and Stitching. It was in pretty pastel florals I do remember that and I jazzed it up with funky brights of course! All the blanket stitch was done by hand and it was my first attempt at prairie points.... We have too many cushions on our couches, a mix of handmade by me and store brought ones. I have decided to unpick the poor rough stippling I did on this one and put some wadding inside and stipple it again and hang it on the wall.

There is still time to enter my Ugly Fabric Giveaway as part of the Sewn launch. Good luck!

Nice Helen...much better as a wall hanging than a cushion!

This is a very charming mini quilt and I love it with the bright colours. Will be a great wall hanging.

Love the pink and purple strip blocks as well. Perfect for a baby girl...

It's beautiful. I am making a little wall quilt, and someone asked me if it was a cushion!
