A cushion cover seemed to fit the bill.
I also liked quiltshopgal's (formerly showcalgal) idea of a colour scheme for the month. This being February, the colour is of course reds, pinks and passion.
I found some not quite fat quarters that I had dyed - I no longer remember when or why or what I had in mind for them. They are not exactly passionate red, more an affectionate and warm selection of pink to purples.
I cut them into strips and thought they would look good pieced with some silver sliver insets. The free motion quilting is also done in silver and is very subtle.
I still have enough strips to make several more and I think the next one I will try to quilt in dark red or perhaps a soft grey. So, maybe there is just a little thinking after all!
And here is the cover, complete with cushion .
