My first make of 2016 - new cushions. I love my sofas, very comfy, but that's an awful lot of brown/grey to put up with without a splash of colour. I've been hoarding this lovely bright Amy Butler fabric for a while now, happy to have found a use for it.  These are also the first cushions I've ever made so I was very relieved to find that the pads still fitted by the time I'd finished. laugh

Clever towelSeascapeThey are really great Lexy, love that design with offset strips.

Here are a few little things I have managed to finish. Did them in a rush to show at our Palma Cosipatch group last Sat.

Xmas Runner

Finished the Christmas runner after the holidays! Towel thing is in use. It's a hexagon folded in half, so reversible and I like the seascape, it is on my sewing room wall.

These are lovely, well done Sylvia and Lexy. I love your cushions Lexy, and all three of your projects Sylvia. I've not seen a towel hanging thing like that before, is it stitched to the towel itself?

Love the cushions Lexy. My daughter gave me some Amy Bulter fabrics some time ago and I've been working through them making a different block with each fabric.

Sylvia, your towel hanger is really cute and I love the seascape and table runner.

Well done both of you.

Thanks for lovely comments ladies. Yes the towel is gathered up to fit first and then sewn by machine onto the centre of the hexagon shaped holder.

Sorry, don't have a pattern or a website. We were just told what strips to take and then shown what to do. It is the standard way of making a strip hexagon though. I.e. sew the strips together, cut the wedges one way and then the other and then join them. The workshop fastening was a tab and button but I closed with two big press studs and added the hanging loop. As it is double sided it is reversible. Hope that helps.

Thanks everyone for your nice words on the cushions.

Sylvia, I love that fabric landscape. I've been admiring how people are able to do such lovely pictures like that - I may have to seek out a class.

Liz, great star wars quilt, the framing around the panel really works well.
