I am continuing on with postage stamp cushions this week and thoroughly enjoying piecing them together. Last week, I posted about this one below, which I hope to finish by this Friday:

The biggest reward I got after sharing this one with everyone, was my 5-year-old asked if he could have one too. Surprisingly, I felt so proud and delighted he wanted one :-), of course I replied and off I went to make one.

I recently purchased the Constellations bundle by Lizzie House for Andover,  as I want to use it in a quilt for my son. I decided that I would use a strip of each fabric and add a wonky star in yellow for the sun. I have sewn all the strips for the pillow (10 of them) and here are the top 8 (all I could fit on my hanger). You can see the wonky star which was my first wonky star – it was fun seeing how the pieces come together. I am loving the constellation fabric – great for a boy. The photo has been rotated so you can see what the final pillow will look like.

I am thinking of either quilting straight lines 1/4 inch from the seams (both horizontal and vertically) or diagonal lines through the corners. I am again hoping to have at least the top finish by Friday to show every one.

Anyway, we are over the hump of the week, hope everyone’s week is going well.
