.... a Harry Potter cushion for my niece's birthday! This is another project that was on my 2016FAL list.
I cut the squares at 5 1/2" to give a finished cover size of 20" and then appliqued on the animals and H.
I learnt why some people use a pressing cloth whilst ironing on the applique .... I have rather shiny patches where I ironed over the seam. I have never experienced this before and wondered whether it was because I was using Heat n Bond for the first time rather than BondaWeb?
I quilted it with a small stipple stitch on my longarm machine. It always makes me laugh to work on something so small on my longarm machine because my frame is 12ft long!
And we have a cushion!!
And whilst we are on the Harry Potter theme here's a stitching my daughter made for her friend's birthday. She was delighted with the result and her friend let out a squeal when she opened it so that was a great result. x
