    My latest cushion (pillow)

    You may remember some of the other cushions I have posted with big stitch quilting, this is one I just finished for my DH. The block is Yellow Brick Road from Jinny Beyer's "Quilter's Album of Patchwork Patterns", slightly modified to fit a frame around. Thanks for looking.

    Your cushion is lovely, I love the pattern and fabrics you chose. I had never heard of big stitch quilting, I can see it enhances your work. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi carolaug,
    I guess you mean the quilting, the stitch is about 1/4 inch and half that between each stitch. It looks better to keep it even rather than exact.
