    Some more cushions (pillows) with big stitch quilting

    You were so kind about my last cushion that I thought you might like to see four I have just finished for our sitting room.

    The fabric is Habitat by Benartex, and I chose to do the two sides differently to give quite an alternative look. I quilted them in big stitch again and used Hobbs Heirloom Wool batting, as it is so cosy and lovely to work with.

    The block is From Jinny Beyer’s website and is called Kansas Star - http://www.jinnybeyer.com/quilting-with-jinny/design-board/detail.cfm?blockid=148

    Thank you for looking.

    Beautiful fabric sets and very nicely done with double sides. Thanks for sharing.

    Pretty pillows! I have a question though.... is your quilting done by hand, or machine? It looks perfect!

    Your pillows are gorgeous! They would fit right in the high end home style magazines!
