WIPW - Flimsy Finish

Work In Progress Wednesday can report on a finish - yes, the cushion flimsy of the

Log Cabin Challenge

is finished. Every seam has been covered with fancy stitching.

240 seams, almost 240 stitch types (a few of the centre pieces share the same seams, like here:

Before I can turn this into a cushion, I need to get hold of fabric for the back, a zipper and make the inner cushion. It will take some time before I can visit a shop, so the flimsy will be shelved.

I stitched five more blocks for the quilt, so the total is now 260.

Tvistsöm Cushion
I stitched two more rows so have 64.

Freeform Embroidery
Six types of stitches were added to the lower left corner:
Crown, Mennonite Tacks, Buttonhole Fly, Tied Windmill, Methodist Knot and Corded Bar.

Crazy for Crazy

It was time to add beads and pearls.


  1. Your flimsy is a beauty with the colors and embroidery, congratulations.
    And the stitches in your Crazy Q block and free form project are gorgeous.
    Wonderful progress here.

  2. Congratulations, well done and it looks amazing. I am always in awe of your beautiful stitching.

  3. Congratulations on the flimsy finish! Are you sad that it is at an end or relieved! I can't believe all the different stitches you were able to put into it! Determination and creativity!

  4. Well done! The cushion top is amazing.

  5. Well done! The flimsy is a great success, and when you can finish it, it will be a delight forever!
