Dolly quilt...take 2!

About 18mths ago I participated in Material Obsessions Dolly Quilt club. It was great...new techniques...intro to rulers...new colour combinations...stretching my boundaries. While trying to sort my sewing backlog, I found this wheel...I had made one as a DQ & had enough left to partially construct another...well it is complete...edged with ricrac on linen...I think I will make it into a cushion...any other ideas?

Cute!!! and cute!! colours....

Love the cushion idea... what about a centre of a table cloth... of course it would have to be a circle table cloth. It would look cute with the same material as the centre circle fabric... (red dots) and blue ric rac around the edge.

Alison that is just beautuful. I need to start using my wedge ruler. I like it for an end table mat or coffee table mat.
