    I made this for my Mum's birthday on the 24th of this month - she's got a new leather suite and it's not that comfy to sit on so she wanted something to soften her place up a little! :shock:

    It's made using a Moda charm pack 'Portugal'. I speed pieced the geese 4 at a time using the method on Quilter's Cache - it worked really well. The centre is needle turn applique. And I did a bit of FMQ and some 'stumbling-around-in-the-general-area-of-the-ditch' on the machine; as i'd used double thickness batting to make it extra soft I didn't want to hand quilt! :shock:

    It's just a little thing but I'm quite pleased with how it turned out. :D

    It matches the cushions I made her last Christmas - there are 5 more or less the same, only the central appliqué on each is slightly different, but basically if you've seen one, you've seen them all! :shock: :lol:

    Mum's and Dad's cushion - I made five of these for them last Christmas

    The two together - not exactly the same but they sort of 'go'!

    Pretty -

    My Grandma used to make "bun warmers" - but hers were extremely utilitarian, whereas yours are extremely pretty.

    I love this idea and the colors are beautiful. I need to make something for my DH and I to sit on when the Rodeo comes to town and we're sitting on FREEZING cold bleechers. We cover with a quilt, why not sit on one too :) :)
    I'm inspired :)

    Hello! This is my first post and pleasure to make it on such a thoughtful thread.

    Your mother will love it and will appreciate all your time. You should be pleased. The fabrics relate beautifully.

    Love your idea of a seat cushion. I need one or two, too, so I'm adding it to my list right now. I love the way yours goes together with the pillow. Both items are very cute!

    I'll bet your mom is thrilled! Be careful--you could wind up reupholstering her couch or making draperies from this same pattern!

    Very nice K! Love the colors and your applique is always perfect! Great job! I'll have to check out the flying geese method you mentioned.

    Those are so pretty Kathryn. I can't remember if you made the pillow before? Your mother is going to love this gift. You have such a talent.
