Brit Quilt Swap ( Pillow Fight)

Hi there folks.

Here it is the latest instalment on how my Rainbow River cushion/pillow is coming on.

I have finally managed to complete the quilting part and all that is left to do is add the stitchery and then cut it to size and add the zip.

I'm quite pleased with how the quilting went this time around. Well lets face it anything less than five days unpicking is a vast improvement on last time.

I must admit I'm finding this swap really relaxing and not nearly as stressful as the last one was. I think I learned from last time that most people appreciate the fact that you are trying to make something nice for them and are very supportive of each other in these swaps. The most nerve racking time is going to be adding the zip because I've never done one before and the sending of the cushion because I really really hope my partner likes it.

Anyway I better go and start dying the threads I'm using for the stitchery part of this cushion. I will blog about this once they are done.
Until then stay happy, healthy and keep blogging.


  1. That quilting look fantastic! :)

  2. SO glad you are enjoying the swap, it can be a little nerve wracking. Good luck with the zip.
