Birthday blog post - quilted vintage star cushion covers

It was Mamma's birthday on Wednesday last week, but due to extremely slow mail deliveries, I haven't been able to publish this entry until now!! It seemed a shame if she'd seen her presents on the blog before she had opened the parcels!

As almost everyone else I know, she already has everything, and as always it is really difficult to come up with ideas of what to give her, especially when we are no longer living together, or even in the same country.

She was the one that made me interested in sewing, much more so than the horrible sewing teachers I had to endure at school...

So, here goes, this year's birthday presents : two vintage star cushion covers, based on the Starflower block. Both have a quilted front and a simple back with the border fabric at the edge of the opening on the envelope cover.
