First Finish from FQSR London: Portholes Pillow

I finished one of the projects started on FQSR London Weekend! I made a sample block in Lucie Summers' class and turned it into a small pillow. It measures around 30 cm x 30 cm. In class I managed to sew on an envelope back and just had to make the binding at home. I used a 2,5'' solid strip and attached it to the top. I folded it over to the back and stitched in the ditch. I have to confess that I do love it very much and I'm sure I'll do more portholes in the near future. Thanks Lucie for the entertaining class :o)

Happy Sewing!


  1. oh, so adorable! I love the way the high contrast circles draw your attention right to the cute little monkey :)

  2. It is lovely and a great idea for using that porthole block, maybe I will make one too.

  3. Oh, Christine, I just love that pillow!!! How cute!! Whoop whoop!!

  4. So cute!! Great color combo, and that monkey! I love the porthole block idea too.

  5. Love that cushion .. Have had a play with the technique too. Also finished my Jelly Roll Race quilt but think I will be chopping it up and reforming it... Will post the result..
