What are you most proud of? How manly the cushion looks :) and the pleasure it will bring (well I hope!) And I love how the back of the cushion looks having incorporated all 3 fabrics used in the front.

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Buy this course it is super, with lots of very clever and time-saving tips.

Thanks Jean I was pleased how manly it turned out ha! We are both good now thankfully we may have lost valuables but they can be done without or replaced, but a life cannot. Thanks for your concern.

I so sorry to hear about what happened but am glad you're returning to normal! This block is very masculine and I think I will make a similar one, if you don't mind. It's sometimes hard to please the men in our lives with quilting projects - they need to embrace bright colors and pattern! But until they do, this pillow is perfect.

I did buy the course but haven't had time to start it: your projects make me want to get to it! Like your fabrics and the appropriate quilting. Always fun to see your work! Stay well.

Thanks Pam, I look forward to seeing what you do with this class. I too, am very busy (looking after my three grandchildren) and seem to have less time for quilting but it is good to be busy and able to do it xxx

(remember when we thought life would be calmer once our kids left home? sounds of me laughing hysterically....) But we are so blessed with out grandchildren! Life is good, we sew when we can :-D
