Little Blue Wren

I'm not doing as well as I hoped on getting back into blog writing ... but better late than never!

My latest finish is this cushion, designed by Jess Frost and Briony Alderslade. When I was in Melbourne I had the privilege of attending the Australian Quilt Convention with Susan. We decided to attend a short class by Jess, where she was teaching English Paper Piecing, as we were both keen to meet her! The photo below is of the three of us, Jess on the left and Susan on the right with myself in the middle (holding Jess' cushion)! 

This was a really fun make. It took me a while, but I enjoyed having some EPP at hand, especially to sew in the evenings. The fabric kit and pattern was put together by Frangipani Fabrics, and I think they still sell it. I used some brown felt for the foot, a little black button for the eye and a local batik fabric for the back.

I gifted the cushion to a friend who was leaving my part of the world, who loves the colour blue!
