I decided to make mine up in a cushion in colours matching the July Block I made into a table runner for her.
Because her runner had a white background and a black and white print in it, I chose those as my 2 framing fabrics. I think they worked well, and is very different to the original, so shows how a lighter frame works. A border would show the block better, but I had already reached the size I wanted for the cushion
My mother loves her cushion and it does go well with her runner, despite being a very different pattern.
Below is the runner made from Sandy's Brilliant Clusters pattern
The back of the cushion is the same as the border fabric on the table runner.
I have enjoyed the Block of the month with Upstairs Hobby Room, and have made some lovely things over that time.
Thanks to Sandy for her hard work hosting this and for providing the patterns. Also thanks to the sponsors, especially Zipit, who I received some lovely zips from.
I am joining in with the linky for this month's block.
