Cotton Fabric from stash and some old duvets.
What was your inspiration?
My daughter, Susan asked me to teach her to make a patchwork cushion as she wanted to give it to a friend for a birthday present. We just gathered various fabrics from my stash and some of her old duvets which suited the colour scheme.
What are you most proud of?
I was so proud of how Susan asked me to teach her how to do patchwork and how much fun it was for us to do it together.
I used a different opening with this cushion... with no buttons or buttonholes :)
What advice would you give someone starting this project?
Make cushions, they are so quick and fun to sew. You can practice so many different patterns/techniques on a small scale.
