Home Sewn

I attended a wonderful sewing retreat on the weekend. It was lovely to be able to sew up a storm with friends, and have all the meals taken care of. Bliss …..

After recently finishing a new quilt, it was nice to be able to work on some smaller projects. I made up a collection of cushions/pillows for our family room. You may recall that I am gradually adding more aqua and white to the room to freshen it up.

First up, three rectangular pillows, made from duck-cloth, with a patchwork panel of Joel Dewberry’s Modern Meadow in the Pond Palette.

Finished off at the back with an envelope closure and three self covered buttons.

Two square cushions in Herringbone Pond fabric and backed with duck-cloth.

Two square cushions in printed duck-cloth with New York Subway text print (fabric purchased from Spotlight).

I will share more photos of our living space when I have put a few more finishing touches to it! It feels so good to have finally made the pillows – they have been on my sewing To Do list since January.

Never miss a post.

    Lovely – I especially love the herringbone buttons. It’s those small touches that make handmade so special to me. Congrats on crossing something off your list!
