Footloose in the garden

Footloose in the garden

I enjoyed stitching the mini Footloose cushion so much, I decided to make the full size version as a birthday gift for one of my nieces. The colour palette is based on her sitting room – I think she has sophisticated taste!

The Papper Sax Sten Drunkard’s Path templates always make such neat curves, and the top came together very quickly.

The quilting is based on one of the designs in Jacquie Gering’s new book Walk 2.0. It’s a series of interlocking circles which make a flower blossom.

I wanted to make one large flower to cover the whole quilt, so used the lid of our laundry basket as a template. The quilt needed a bit more quilting, so I echo quilted each circle in a teardrop shape.

This was a lovely quilt to make, and my niece was delighted with it!
