Here are some more photos for the lovely (even if I do say so myself! lol…) cushion which I made last week for my Project 52 as promised…
This was a present for my brother Simon & Natalie for their wedding present so I wanted to make sure I’d gifted it to them before I showed it off! I made it in their wedding colours green, grey & ivory (the blue is all me – lets just call it their “something blue” shall we!) to remind them of the day.

Because it was for a wedding present for 2 special people I wanted to try something complex which I wouldn’t ordinarily be ballsy enough to try. I’ve been a long admirer of cathedral windows and have wanted to give them a go for a while. And in all honesty I thought that even the name “cathedral windows” was very appropriate considering that Si & Nat got married at “The Mission Estate” vineyard with their reception inside the beautiful old church there. So I gave it a go, and loved it so much that it was tempting to keep it 🙂

|Trying it out for size… hmmm… goes well with my bed quilt! Shame it’s not for me!|

I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out and I think they are too.
I think it will be a while before I attempt to make one again though… so much ironing involved – sheesh!!
I will eventually make them a quilt too, but they would rather wait until they’ve settled somewhere first. So this is their “in the meantime” present.
Linking up for the first time today with Fabric Tuesday.
The pillow is beautiful, Kat, and a wonderful wedding gift. I love the colours! And I just figured out that do your blog posts and then end of your day – just as I sit down for breakfast before the school run.
Kat this is stunning!! Was it as complex to make as it looks? I wouldn’t mind giving one a go if you’ll kindly show me the ropes 🙂
You did such a great job with this! It’s seriously beautiful.
That is a great pillow. You did such a super job with the cathedral windows. I want to try those sometime for sure!
This looks so amazing! I love the color selection and I’m sure they loved it.
Oh wow..that is really stunning…a gift I am sure only worthy of one who would appreciate it.
Lovely, indeed! Cathedral windows are something I’d like to try … some day. = )
Wow, that is absolutely beautiful! I don’t blame you for wanting to keep it for yourself! You are such a clever chick 🙂
GORGEOUS! And I love that you used the word “ballsy” lol! I can’t hardly get points to line up in a patchwork, I won’t be doing cathedral windows anytime soon!
I *adore* cathedral windows, and your pillow is simply outstanding!!
Wow, great job! It’s beautiful. 🙂
It’s beautiful Kat! And so much thought you put into the colors – nice, nice, nice!
Really lovely colours and a beautiful pillow to be sure!
just found your lovely blog via flickr, the cushion is beautiful!
do you have instructions for the cathedral windows quilt?
