Last of the month

I gave myself a pinch and a punch for the (second to) last of the month when I read Wendy's email about getting to 500 finishes. DH went off to night shift and I did my own night shift in my sewing room: I found the UFO bag with my discarded attempt at Storm at Sea in a 'flaming' colourway. after I had reread the instructions it was quite easy to make it 4 square in a square in a square blocks with the smaller sq in a sq. I found some (almost) matching black left overs (slightly too narrow but I have gotten good at cheating ;D). I turned out to approx. 50cm square after addition of some golden ribbon to one corner so I added some black moda to the back to make it a cushion cover (I have to admit, I don't have a matching pillow inner yet, DH looked for one locally today but no such luck).
The quilting is from Leah Day's FMQA, I think it's the sunflower (how does she get all her lines so straight?).
I like the 'brightness' of the finished result and hopefully it will get an inner soon! I have made a lot of cushion covers this year, I won't need any next year I suppose... Finish No. 18 I think :-)

I love fire-y look and the quilting is wonderful. My lines are never straight either. I guess it takes lots of practice.
