I thought I’d share some photos of my cushions which I made at a workshop.
Each quarter of the cushion front design is made on a piece of cotton fabric with the sewing lines drawn on. I think it is called foundation piecing, correct me if I’m wrong 🙂
It isn’t quilted at all but still has enough body from the extra layer of foundation fabric. I made the back in a deep envelope style from the darkest fabric which matches the front.
We had a lot of fun at the workshop. It was nice to do something we hadn’t tried before and we were both pleased with our results. One of the best parts was seeing how different colour choices made the designs take on a whole new look.
For some reason my photos disappeared when I first posted this. Here is the updated version!
There was plenty of fabric left to make another one so I swapped the colours around.
I did think about sewing a giant button in the middle but decided to let the fabrics do the talking in the end.
Another close up just for good measure. I hope you like them
