So I had inteded to use some of these panels for Christmas gifts and as that clearly didn't happen, I now managed to make two of them into cushions for my nieces' 8th and 13th birthdays.
DANCE THE NIGHT AWAY - for 13-year old
The panel is framed by a small (neon-ish) green border and a frame of randomly placed HST's and solid squares. I love how this turned out! Wish I could keep it for myself...
Due to some miscalculations the front panel came out too large and I had to chop off the edges. As you can see there are no points along the sides...
MR. PIPSQUEAK - for 8-year old
I was getting short on time and had to do a (much) simpler design on this one. But I still think it is very cute - the doggy is quite detailed enough on its ows!
To make up for the simple front - I added a crazy print (from Trade Winds by Moda) on the back - which went over really well - yay!
So there - I was very happy to finish these up about 3 hours before their birthday party! Yes, I am a procrastinator...
