Show and tell Monday

I know I've missed a Monday and there are no excuses except to say life got in the way of sewing! But hey back this week with a couple of finishes. 

Now those of you that have looked carefully at my quilts will have noted that I tend to stick to quilting in straight lines.  This is mainly because my attempts at free motion quilting have ended up with frantic squiggles rather than lovely free flowing swirls, so this week I have made some simple cushions in order to practice.

Still a long way to go..........

At this rate I'm going to be over run with cushions!!

Also I've been busy making a little "train case" using a pattern from Sara Lawson. I made the middle size but having finished it wish I'd gone for the larger one.  It was a bit fiddly to put together but the instructions are clear and the diagrams good. Sara's pattern can be found at "Sew Sweetly".

Happy Monday..... Jacky O
