I've been making the most of the Christmas break to complete some UFO's.
This is another 'Cosy Quilt' to add to the collection.  It's 50"x50" approx. and features 16  crazy blocks in hand dyed fabric.  The panto quilting pattern is in a bright pink thread to create a visual link to the pink in the central blocks.

Basting to hold the layers in place while hand stitching.
I've used DesignMatters compressed sponge and Laura's poppy seedhead shapes for this simple cushion design.   The gorgeous visual texture is created by the airholes in the sponge.  A fine calico fabric, Madeira variegated Lana thread, a touch of copper sparkle thread and a ' frame' in rayon satin stitch work well together.
