Sewing and Craft

Walking in a Winter Wonderland

More like sweating on a hot Summer’s day, but we can dream. I put aside making things for other people and the shop for a few hours this week and made myself some cushions. I’d had this fabric for a few years and couldn’t recall what I wanted to do with it. I came across this cushion in my travels and it heavily inspired these!

The Red Wren - Cushions 

I had a crash course in log cabin blocks and off I went. I’m so pleased with them. I decided against quilting them, I love the look for the quilting on Karen’s version but decided not to spend any more time on these so I can get some other things done. I went a bit silly with the scraps and now have lots of 2.5 inch squares to sew into something!
