A new quilt


What do you think of my new quilt? I started it yesterday afternoon and put the final borders on this afternoon, yep a 24 hour quilt. I have made this quilt before using my flower sugar fabrics. I bought some Riley Blake fabric called Sweet divinity at christmas time and it was hard to decide what to make from it, as the prints are quite big I didn't want to cut them up too small so this pattern was perfect. I'm hoping to get some time this week to quilt it.
I also have my first OPAM finish for April, I made these little cushions to fit in my box with other mini cushions, they were fun and quick to make. Using my reproduction fabric stash but these babies didn't use much fabric at all.
I hope you found some sewing time today. I'm off to make a few more hexagons.

I absolutely adore your quilt, its so striking. The colours are my favourites. With your small cushions, did you use stuffing or do you have a mini cushion insert you have purchased previously? I'm thinking of making some with some stitcheries for thank yous.
