Wedding Cushion

I was at the wedding of one of my nieces on Sunday. It's been 'tradition' over the last few weddings that I've attended that I've made a heart, usually a small embroidered heart although last time I decorated a wooden heart. This time I made a cushion. I cut the letters out with my Zing and used a Heat'n bond backing, then ironed in place. I used wadding so that it would have a quilted feel and embroidered around the letters and hearts with a running stitch. I put more stuffing in the hearts from a cut in the backing fabric, like trapunto quilting.

Large Swatch Quilt

I finished a quilt made out of swatches from Spoonflower all of which are my designs.
You can find all the fabrics here.
I'm afraid none of the photos are particularly good though.
