Dipping my toe into the mock log cabin world.
Spud likes to bounce on it,
and then have a little rest.
I blame Amanda for making me stray away from the house painting road.
Here's wishing you a happy weekend all !

June 19, 2009 at 03:43 PM
It's gorgeous. love it. :)
June 19, 2009 at 03:55 PM
its beautiful! and very inspirational...hope you have a lovely weekend.

Ooooh I have wanted to try log cabin for ages but do not think I could cope with the measuring, but a cushion is a good idea, not to much fabric for me to screw up!
June 19, 2009 at 04:32 PM
This turned out great! I really like the quilting detail.
June 19, 2009 at 06:46 PM
sighhhhhhhh...you always do such beautiful things.
June 19, 2009 at 10:31 PM
As already said on Flickr, i really REALLY love this (untill the moon and back, as my daughter use to say)
June 20, 2009 at 12:43 PM
It's beautiful! I love your sense of color. You have such a way with what you make - it makes my heart happy to see your projects. Thanks for sharing.
June 20, 2009 at 02:42 PM
It's really pretty. What makes it 'mock' log cabin?
I'm feeling a little guilty. It's been over a year now and I still haven't made cushions for my daughter's room...

Oh, I LOVE this pillow. But it is this EXACT combination of fabrics I love. If I made it....it just wouldn't be the same. It is just so lovely! Congratulations!
June 21, 2009 at 02:11 AM
Oh my - the fabrics and colors are absolutely wonderful! Great choices!
June 21, 2009 at 04:57 AM
I love it!
June 21, 2009 at 08:15 AM
The colours on the that are beautiful - well done!
June 21, 2009 at 09:59 AM
It's outrageously pretty! The fabrics look so very right together.
June 21, 2009 at 05:27 PM
The cushion is lovely! I adore the fabrics and the quilting on it! What makes it Mock log cabin though?
June 22, 2009 at 12:16 AM
I was just thinking this morning that maybe I'd try to do something log cabin. This is perfect! I love the reds!
June 22, 2009 at 02:16 AM
Missed you - glad you're back :-)
June 22, 2009 at 09:29 PM
I love that cushion, the fabrics are gorgeous. I really want to try to make one from all those scraps!
June 23, 2009 at 02:06 PM
I think this cushion is beautiful, I love the hand stitching. Could you point me in the direction of instructions for something similar please? I've never tried quilting before and I'm not sure what layers you are supposed to use and whether you do the hand stitching through all of them.
June 23, 2009 at 05:28 PM
That is beautiful - I love the colours!

Soule mama is very distracting isn't she! Very lovely quilt cushion, has a lovely feel to it, as though it's very old. And i love your crochet blanket peeping round the back of the cushion.
June 26, 2009 at 03:47 PM
Lovely combination of fabrics and colours. Sooooo pretty!
June 27, 2009 at 10:47 PM
That's a very pretty cushion !

I just recently discovered your blog and I absolutely love how you often photograph a work-in-progress all the way through so we can really see how to make something. Thank you so much for the time it must take to do that! It is a labor of love on your part, and very much appreciated. That cushion is beautiful, and your little Spud is sooooo precious! Greetings from the other side of the world in Texas, Kari (rhymes with starry)
June 30, 2009 at 02:12 PM
P.S. You really, really, captured me when I read the words “Away with the fairies ~ it’s quieter there” in your bio. Yes, indeed! from Kari (again)
June 30, 2009 at 02:20 PM
So lovely. I am such a quilting chicken. I need to brave the log cabin!

I keep saying I am going to make some of these.... Here I see you made yours way back in June- I am a major procrastinator! I am feeling the Holiday crunch coming on me- just getting a start on Christmas gifts- ahhh... I do think I work best under pressure, so maybe I should just relax until Dec. starts? haha- Hope your Fall is lovely in your part of the world. The leaves are almost all down here and it's starting to get cold. I just want to make tea and soda bread with jam and stay inside looking through craft books and blogs-recipe for my doom! :)

Hmm - looks cute - is this available at most news-stands or did you find this in a speciality bookstore? I've never seen this before at news-stands here in LA...
Fun & fact |
December 14, 2009 at 09:18 AM
Hi Fun & Fact
I was wandering around a specialty bookstore in Sydney and I found a section of Japenese crafts books. There was a book with this technic in it. I immediately thought of Molly Chicken and her cushion! Anyway, I just thought I'd put that out there. It helps if you read Japanese too...but there are step by step pictures to help. But,no, I don't think you will find it on a news stand. Hope this helps :)
December 26, 2009 at 08:16 PM
we miss you
are you all ok ?
December 30, 2009 at 06:43 PM
The log pattern is one of my favourite traditional patterns and your choice of colours is stunning.

Do you know that you are really very gifted dissertation thesis writer and the dissertation writing services won’t equate with your writing technique. If you keep on doing the things like this, some guys will buy dissertation online close to this good post not only from custom thesis writing services, but purchase from you too.
