WIP Wednesday

I am working on a cushion and it is for a friend.  This time I have made sure I am not tempted to keep it myself.  Most of the fabrics are hatbox by Tanya Whelan, which I love.
I have raw edge appliqued the H onto the background.  I use fusible web and stick the shapes on by ironing them with the fusible web underneath.  Then I sew around the edges leaving it raw.  I sew around a couple of times and use different colours.  I only used pale pink so you can hardly see it this time - I must buy some bright pink thread.  Then I quilted it around the letter and also straight lines on either side of the seams around the large square.  Now I just have to make it into a cushion.  I am going to use my taronga zoo fabric and make an envelope opening.  Then I shall give it to my good friend.
Have a great Wednesday!
