Voila! The Paris Cats Are Finished

Last weekend I bought some fat quarters from the Paris Cats range of fabric. All week I wondered what to make with it and yesterday, decided on a cushion cover.

I chose the pattern 'Chelsea Log Cabin' - I know it's not French - I just liked it. I made 16 individual blocks. These 8 had dark starting squares.
I decided to make the cushion back using these fabrics too. I just joined squares for this, and buttons in the closure.
Here is the finished cushion front. I am very happy with it and hope my friend who will be receiving it for xmas will like it too. As she is a French teacher I thought the fabrics would be great for her.

I have started some more pleated log cabin cushion covers and hope to finish one or more for my next post - probably next weekend as I am back at work now. Only 9 weeks until xmas holidays start.
Take care until next time.
