I should have been machine quilting

Yesterday I needed a gift and dived into my Ufo box to see what I could find.
I found 4 star blocks that used to belong to the project Annas Lille Veggteppe (Anna's little wall quilt) by the Norwegian designer Annaka.
I nearly finished the project years back - with stitcheries and all - but so lost interest in the quilt, as it did not really appeal to me, style wise.

I also found a big piece of homespun Japanese fabric that was supposed to be the lining of a bag from the Japanese Yoko Saito years back.
The class with Yoko Saito was nice, the bag not so much for me, taste wise.
Now the fabric is a nice back side of the cushion - and I like the masculine look on this cushion, which is good for the recipient.

Maybe it has to do with the combination of too much grey and brown / beige fabrics? The combination is to dull for me……

I love the finished cushion, so it will hopefully be a good gift  :-)

I should have been machine quilting on my May focus project, but I do not feel like it.
I will get a head start on my June focus project instead!
