These three fabrics were on my Finish Along list for the first quarter of 2014 (I really love the grey on grey dots. It goes without saying that the London themed fabric is simply charming).
My brother in law and his wife arrive from London next week, so it made sense that I finish their cushion cover ahead of any other unfinished projects on my list. Never mind that it was also the smallest project!
Lily assisted me with the layout of the front. Her suggestion of a thin dark frame around the London feature fabric mirrored my thoughts exactly.
I'm not convinced that the black and white back suits the front, but I am not changing it regardless of my feelings. It's on there and it's staying on there (though the recipients may do what they like with it of course). My original thinking was that the embroidered motifs somewhat resembled the London Eye. I think it's the white that is putting my off, given that the faint beige text in the background of the London fabric gives it a beige appearance. Never mind. It is the back of the cushion after all!
