I decided he was the perfect size for a cushion so have bordered him and also put a small ruffle around the edge - however he is to remain a 'cushion flimsy' for now as I want to do a bit more quilting on him later on (he is just stitched in the ditch at the moment).
And I can see I should have cropped the photo below - but ta-da - here is my completed Stitcharound The Block designed and run by Helen Stubbings.
Leanne, Nicky and Janis all worked on this for me. Another friend Leeanne also took part with another group - you can see her completed cushion here.
I have joined the FMQ (free motion quilting) challenge - see it here - in the hope that I can get more confident with my fmq. Then maybe I can make a bit of a dent in the pile of quilt tops I have sitting waiting to be completed :-)
The idea is we practise every day for at least 14 consecutive days - and hopefully see some progress after that time! Today was my first day but I won't show today's fairly abysmal effort but - watch this space - it will be interesting to see how it goes.
That's about it for now, I hope you all had a nice Easter weekend and your stitching and sewing projects are going well. Thank you for visiting,
