Type of item: Home Decor
Style: Cute, Funky, Retro / Vintage
Cotton fabrics, velcro, cushion filler
What was your inspiration?
Getting lots of cushions for my long awaited suite which should be here very soon, hopefully...
And... trying to learn free motion quilting!
What are you most proud of?
I think the cushion with the red border is my best cushion so far... I tried using a stencil and have become confident with the walking foot:)
I am pleased with the 2nd cushion as I did a velcro closing on it as it has a patchword front and back. I also did some fmq using my darning foot on the back it is a bit wobbly but sure.. it is the back of the cushion after all;)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Free Motion Quilting takes practise, practise, practise!!!!
Play about with the 9 patch blocks as you can cut them on the diagonal and cut more than once... just have fun playing with the pieces and see what you come up with!
