How cute! I love the quilting on it!

Sandy Shirley

I say Good Amanda! It's beautiful. Come back soon! We miss you.


That looks great, nice quilting, please blog more often, I love seeing the things you make they are so inspirational (and I love your fabric stash!)


It's gorgeous. love it. :)


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!


This turned out great! I really like the quilting detail.

larissa always do such beautiful things.


As already said on Flickr, i really REALLY love this (untill the moon and back, as my daughter use to say)


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.

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...

red red red... love love love it!


Oh, I LOVE this pillow. But it is this EXACT combination of fabrics I love. If I made just wouldn't be the same. It is just so lovely! Congratulations!

Erin :)


Oh my - the fabrics and colors are absolutely wonderful! Great choices!


I love it!


The colours on the that are beautiful - well done!


It's outrageously pretty! The fabrics look so very right together.


The cushion is lovely! I adore the fabrics and the quilting on it! What makes it Mock log cabin though?


I was just thinking this morning that maybe I'd try to do something log cabin. This is perfect! I love the reds!


Missed you - glad you're back :-)


I love that cushion, the fabrics are gorgeous. I really want to try to make one from all those scraps!


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.

How adorable!! I love little birds too!


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.

Lovely combination of fabrics and colours. Sooooo pretty!


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)


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)


So lovely. I am such a quilting chicken. I need to brave the log cabin!


So very beautiful. The colours and prints just sing.

Missing you too. :)

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! :)


adding my whiny wee voice to the chorus...

"come back! come back! please!"


Very pretty cushion!

every week I have a look at your website and hope there is a new post... I love all your funny witty stories and certainly all the lovely stuff you create.


Gorgeous work! I love how your designs have such a similar feel to them. Just beautiful. Brava!

Anne Marie

Haven't heard from you in a while. Hope you are doing fine and just taking a blog break. Let us hear something from you soon. Miss your posts...

missing you molly chicken - what's new? xo Sue

Paula L.

I miss your posts, please don't give up blogging. Hope you'll be back soon :)

Fun & fact

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...

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 :)


we miss you
are you all ok ?

sandra lamb

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.


Happy New Year :-)

Have you run away to a tropical island and your lounging by the beach with a young cabana boy bringing you fruity drinks? Hope your Christmas was happy and your New Year healthy, happy & prosperous! Miss hearing your banter on here ;)


I love the cushion. Clever you and it has maybe inspired me to have a go as well. This is the year I make the quilt!!


love the colors and if I were standing next to it; I would HAVE to touch it!
