Way too much fun!

... so you remember I was playing with these, right? 


Well, I cut into those precious Art Gallery Fabrics, just a little, and the Moda Crossweave is a perfect partner ... 

and started piecing, and the results were really rather pleasing!


those little babies are 3" finished in size ...

and then I quilted ...


now, lets just say this is a birthday present, and for some time I have been stumped, but inspiration struck when I thought about this quilt!  And then I was inspired!

and I was having so much fun, I carried onto the back!



close up, just so you know ...


another gratuitous shot ...


I love this cushion!  and it was only because it was made specifically for this inspirational Lovely, that I was able to part with it!  After all, she has a quilt and a multitude of cushions that match, and its a privilege to call her a friend, Happy Birthday Katy!

That is stunning. I love how the teeny-tiny-narrow border accentuates the blocks and, of course, the quilting is wonderful.
