    Had this Thai Silk forever so I thought I would make a pair of cushions for a friend who has not been too well, hope she likes them.

    Last time I visited her I noted the colors in her lounge suite, I think they will go rather well. Was not the easiest fabric to work with, Thai Silk frays while you look at it.

    Wow!! Those are the most beautiful pillows I have seen! I can only imagine sewing with that silk. Did you use the serger? Excellent work.

    No I did not use a "Serger" I swear too much at them when the thread breaks so I gave mine away to a good home. Took me ages to work out what a "Serger" was, here down under they are known as "Overlockers".

    Bit like me thinking your Barn Quilts were made out of fabric, two countries divided by a common language.

    Very nice and very clever, I'm sure your friend will love them.

    I'm with you, sometimes I need an interpreter to understand some of the terms on this board. I'm sure our sister quilters think the same of us Aussies.

    Cheers from Sydney,
    Glenda

    Once you have made one you have to make more because of all the choice of color combinations, like quilting they are addictive,

    How come you call them "pillows" when down under we call them "cushions", pillows are what you put your head on when you go to bed, what do you call the "cushions/pillows" on a couch or a chair or do you call them the same?

    You give me inspiration. Have Thai silk from when my DH lived there for work. Your pillows Re gorgeous. If a friend gave me something like this, I would love her forever!
