This one has certainly been a long, long, long time coming.
Although I’ve thrown in a couple of pics here and there I just haven’t had time to write a full post until today….. the day I finally finished, woo hoo!
Here’s a bit of background ………
Before the summer happened my mum mentioned that she might like me to make her a couple of new cushions. I’m not quite sure how serious about this she really was, but after some badgering and persistent pulling out of the fabrics and ‘pillow pop’ she came round.
So this is where I was up to last.
Then I came to a bit of a standstill.
Thankfully I managed to overcome this and
I my mum now has a lovely new quilted cushion with another on its way.
This was an easy make and would have been pretty fast if it weren’t for my rather long pause. It’s a great pattern for using scraps and most of these fabrics came from bits and pieces I had left over so I was happy to be able to put them to good use.
The solids strips are osnaberg, the remnants of this cushion. Although quite a loose texture I love its slubbiness and the fabric is fine once quilted, however I opted for Kona on the back as I wanted something more robust.
I also chose to bind the cushion rather than having raw edges on the inside.
As always I’m praying it doesn’t fall apart!
