    My friends son has a lovely French girlfriend. When we were ot shopping we saw some cushions and my friend said she thought Chrystelle would love them. I came home sorted the fabrics and off I went!! The Union jack is foundation pieced(which I don.t enjoy!! spend more time unsewing!!!) I then decided to do the French Tricolor!! They will be off to Paris next week!!!

    Fantastic Hilary, I know you found doing the Union Jack a pain in the rear but it was worth it, those angles are perfect! These will be well used and treasured forever I am sure :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

    Thanks!!! Won't be doing foundation piecing anytime soon!! :thumbdown: Not my idea of fun! The cushions we saw originally were 35! If I counted the hours I spent on it sewing, ripping out and sewing again I think mine would cost 135!!!! :lol:

    Thanks everyone for kind comments!!! They were fun to do tho I got very frustrated with the foundation piecing of the Union Jack!! My brain doesn't seem to equate doing things back to front!!!!

    These are very nice! You did a fantastic job on them. Yes you could have bought some, but you "made" these & that just makes them super special. I know they will be well loved!
