Repurposing!

Happy Father’s Day to all the dad’s in the UK!

As well as Father’s Day, June is also a busy birthday month in our household. 

No. 1 daughter decided to make a birthday cushion for her boyfriend, inspired by this quilt in my early birthday present this book!

So we chopped up a few pairs of jeans, smaller pieces from shirts, and voila!

Shannon's Denim Cushion

She did all the piecing & quilting herself AND put the zipper in (with a little guidance)!

She’s chuffed to bits with her manly cushion!  Fingers crossed her boyfriend will like it just as much!

And when I eventually reclaimed my sewing machine, I got another Churn Dash block done for Sarah’s Siblings Together Boy quilts ……

…. and the Bee Blessed BOM, Woven block (tutorial here).

Hope you are having a relaxing weekend! (With 7 excitable 14 years olds in my house today, I’m off to find a quiet corner somewhere!).
