I did warn you that I was getting stuck in to some longer projects and here is the first one. I am really happy with how this turned out and while its not perfect its not bad either. The pattern is from Six Penny Memories and is called The Crazy Cushion. It is a Victorian design used to use up scraps. It is stitched onto calico to stabilise the different types of fabric, which wasn't strictly needed this time as the scraps were all polycotton from my scrap stash. I would definitely do future projects onto calico as it has a lovely feel to it. Obviously a quilt wouldn't need it but wall hangings and cushions could well benefit from it.
