My Chicopee cushion - now called the Spinning Canoes cushion - is finished! It's been sitting in my sewing room basted and ready to quilt for ages (a month?) but I've been completely stumped as to how to quilt it. I'd given up on creative ideas and was going to do dense horizontal straight lines - but changed my mind at the last minute, and decided to echo the canoe shapes on one on the diagonals.
I love the effect the quilting has achieved - it adds to the curved illusion of the blocks, without being too distracting, I think.
It's finished up at 20" so it's a lovely big cushion for snuggling on the couch. And quilting it has made me love it again :o)
It's nice to finally have this one finished and sitting on the couch! Linking up with Sew Modern Monday at Canoe Ridge Creations (button in sidebar).
I hope everyone has had a great weekend.
It looks great Jess. I love the quilting effect.
Fantastic! And I love the quilting
Oh, that's fab, the quilting really looks like ripples in the water, great choice of quilting x x
so lovely! If you change your mind about loving it you can send it to me. I'll give it a good home :-)
So beautiful and the quilting just 'fits'. Di x
