So I get this phone call from my son, just the day before the delivery,
you know how the story goes,
'mum, how much would it cost for you to make a cushion for my girlfriends sister, its her birthday next week?'
tell me I'm not the only one that gets those kind of requests? Please!
so said recipient is 1 years old, girly girl, like pink, ... yeah I get the picture!
Something pretty and girly!
so I pulled a few fabrics,
I'd had some time to think about what I was going to do
but I did have a plan ...
it didn't take long to get all the cutting done
and in no time at all, I was stitching down and quilting all in one go
a bit more quilting around the outside,
because you can never have too much quilting in my very humble opinion!
a quick zip insertion, and a cushion was born
and what better than 'girl on a swing' in pink by Aneela Hoey for the perfect back!
I had a lovely text and phone call to say how much this gift was loved!
I call that a successful make,
I love it when a plan comes together!
This one gets my vote;-) but you already know that! Pretty gift.
Gorgeous, and like you say, the perfect backing! :o)
What a great gift!
Perfick I'd say :-)
A perfect cushion!
Perfect for girls of all ages!
When a 'plan' comes together?! It's very cute though :o)
Gorgeous - perfect for a little girl!
"WOW" great gift for a young girl.
I can imagine that the gift was liked. That is so beautiful.

I love dresdens! I'm going to inflict them on my class one day! This cushion is so girly and pretty! Well done mum! Jxo
You're a big softie! But what a beautiful cushion and a great gift to give.
That is beautiful. I bet the lucky birthday girl loved it.
It's gorgeous, T! Only you would "whip up" a Dresden. Incredible :)
Oh you are good!
You are the best mom, as that is a beautiful pillow.

your son is really polite! mine would say "can you make a cushion ..." - for free :)

The cushion is beautiful. Perfect for a little (or big) girl. I haven't started having these requests yet, luckily!
