Another Day, Another Cushion 2 {Week 27/52}

Life has been busy. Deadlines and commitments mean that this blog has taken a bit of a back seat... 





But in all of the busy times, I've still enjoyed some hand sewing - either in the evenings or at my children's after school activities.

I made this Dresden flower a long time ago with some scraps of this Aneela Hoey fabric (Sew Stitchy maybe?). I rediscovered it in my scrap tub and appliqued it onto some white backing fabric. I fused some pellon to the back and then hand quilted the flower with Perle 8 cotton in white and red.





I put the cushion together with an envelope style back and sewed the binding on, just like I would a quilt.





This was a fun little project and it's the latest addition to my other handmade cushions on the couch.




How many cushions is TOO many?


BTW: I'll be back as soon as I can with the second half of the QAYG quilt tutorial. This post will include the assembly steps. How are your blocks going? Are you ready for the next part?

  1. It's beautiful! It is Sew Stitchy - I still have a FQ bundle of it that I am yet to use. I personally don't think that you can ever have too many cushions. My husband would disagree. I was thinking that I should make my cushions in two sizes; one slightly bigger (or smaller!) than the other, so that one fits inside the other. That way I have two sets; peel one off one to reveal the other!
