Doing these monthly free patterns certainly makes the year seem to fly by! April - sunshine and showers, and flying geese? This cushion is inspired by the ever useful fat quarter, though you can also use long quarters for this one. If you've been tempted by a gorgeous FQ bundle at a show, brought it home, then thought what on earth am I going to make with that?... then this is the project for you. Or of course, you could go for brights as I did - these Spectrum Solids from Makower are now available on the website.
The PDF pattern includes a quick and nifty way to make four geese blocks at once - it did make me smile to see Angela Walters using this same technique in her latest Midnight Quilter episode (total coincidence, promise!) If you've missed these YouTube shows for Craftsy you must watch them, totally hilarious, and definitely my kind of quilter!

Talking of new products, here is the latest version of my All Squared Up Quilt kit, this time featuring these glorious Sun Prints fabrics by Alison Glass for Andover Fabrics. I've paired these with a lovely dark rich grey that I think makes the fabrics shine so beautifully!
The kit includes all the pre-cut 2.5" strips, border and binding strips you need to complete the quilt top, plus a reel of 50wt thread and full instructions. I have also put together a fabric pack to make the back pictured above. The layout and instructions are included in the kit anyway, so now you can also grab these fabrics, which include a grey blender from P&B Textiles' Bear Essentials collection and nine Sun Prints strips.
