Finishing off 2 sewing projects

I love finishing off projects!  I set myself a goal to finish at least 2 sewing projects this month, and here they are:

I wanted to have a go at cathedral window patchwork, and found a pattern at www.sleepingbear.co.uk to practise with.  I was so pleased with how they turned out that I made this cushion:

The ‘insides’ of the window are made with scraps left from Mum’s quilt, and I was so glad I found the green spotty fabric for the border.  Not sure where it came from, but it looks fab on my sofa!

How about this seascape?  I started this a few years ago with some charm squares I bought from eBay.  I added in some ideas I had from a quilt show at Sandown., and just generally added bits as I went along.  No pattern!  I think it looks a bit like snakes and ladders!  And it is my first free machine quilting on a project.  I’ve decide to call it finished now and may hang it on the wall in my downstairs toilet!

I am intrigued by those little windows in your cushion - the glimpses of colour are delightful. And there'd be lots of look at and hold the gaze if your quilt makes it onto a wall ...
