But I need to make cushions to demonstrate how a patchwork block can be quilted and turned into a cushion cover for the courses I am teaching and the bi-monthly course I am teaching over the course of a year at Prema Arts from July.
So I took the Bow Tie and Diamonds block I designed last year and used some fabrics from the Notting Hill fabric range that I bought a little while ago. I am pretty pleased with how they turned out!
I loved the grey with the bright colours of the focus fabric, and I edged the cushion with some bright orange Kona fabric.
For backing I used some lovely darker grey from my stash, so that the contrast with the front and edging is really cool!
I am now bitten by the cushion making bug! Luckily we really need some cushions in our living room, so I turned a WIP into a cushion cover rather than a sewing machine mat!
It looks so cool! I love it!
More swirls - I love swirls!
So they look pretty good on our sofa and the boys have already been lounging on them and using them in dens, which means they are hit!
I see many more cushions in the near future!
