This was supposed to be a quick project to get back into the swing of things.

 It has taken rather longer than I had planned, guess it was all those filler stitches (note to self: not good for a quick project).

I love the texture that lots of stitching gives a piece though, so I am glad I did it, and I now have a new cushion.

I even put a zipper in using a tutorial from House on the Hill


When I started this piece, I chose the dark stitching to add contract to the pieces of fabric that were very similar in value.

  1. Hello Deborah... oh really beautiful is the finished project is... And you now tempted me fully that I should also try one... as I have many hand painted silk pieces so I can go for multi coloured cushion... very very lovely and its such a creative idea... a bit different from routined quilting... its creativity ...
    Happy Valentine’s Day … hope you spare a little bit of your valuable time for me …

  2. Absolutely fantastic! Well worth the extra time to convert this from a "quick" project to an "amazing" one.

  3. Fabulous pillow and fantastic creativity


Thank you for taking the time to comment. I do try to respond to each one but
if you do not hear from me it is probably because you are a "no reply blogger".
