Striped Scatter Cushion

Project Description

What are you most proud of? I love how the cushion looks when I laid out the striped fabric vertically and horizontally. I am also pleased with my grid quilting using the masking tape to ensure straight edges (thanks Wendy) It was good to recycle some cotton clothing. What advice would you give someone starting this project? You should get the Machine Quilting Class by Wendy Butler Berns

What you will need

  • Cotton dress
  • black cotton fabric

One word, Desna - SNAZZY! I have a large bag full of my beautiful '80s Laura Ashley dresses with metres and metres of pure cotton fabric in the skirts that are just waiting for me to unpick them and make something else out of them. You've just shown me how successful doing so can be!
desna answered:
