Ruby Ruby Ruby AGAIN

Hello everyone.

I am feeling a little exasperated. Blogger has just deleted my new post, as well as my post from Friday. Hence this post being AGAIN.

I wanted a permanent record of my Ruby Cushions so I am going to show them AGAIN....

I really like the Ruby line from Kate Spain. It is in some of my favourite colours - dark pink, green and grey. For some time now, I have really been wanting to make this cushion by Katy at I'm a Ginger Monkey blog . The instructions are in Fat Quarterly here.

So with a charm pack and a couple of fat quarters I made this cushion.
First of all I got cutting...

 Then I got sewing...

Until I finally ended up with this cushion.
I am so pleased with how it has turned out. I quilted a 1/4 inch either side of the seams and I really like the effect. The back is just a simple envelope construction.

Spurred on from my success I decided to make a couple of dresden plate cushions out of the remainder of the charm pack and fat quarters. 
The results are these...

I am pretty pleased with these too. I did a little hand quilting around the plates and inner border.

The back is again, just a simple envelope construction.
A trio of Rubys

So that is my Ruby Ruby Ruby Ruby post a second time around!

I hope Blogger is behaving better for you than for me! Di xo
