Little Folks Constellation Cushion

July already! I finished this cushion cover last weekend and almost forgot to take a photo. It's a huge cushion cover, made for a 26" cushion pad I don't yet have. I still need to wash it, but I figure I'll wait until I actually have a cushion for it, so it can go straight into service.

I was inspired by Katy's Liberty Constellation and used my precious stash of Little Folks charm squares, as well as some Liberty tana lawn. The background is Quilter's Linen in Straw, with a strip of Moda Bella Solids Citrine. The back is mostly a solid pinky red, with scraps of the front fabrics. The binding is a Loulouthi zigzag which matched perfectly :) I quilted organic straight lines on both front and back. 

This week I'll hopefully be finishing the hand quilting on my sister's quilt. I'm also hoping to sew up a few soft toys, starting with Sammy Squid. I'm planning on using some of my vintage sheet stash.
