A Cushion

I really liked this cushion pattern in my new book, Anna Maria Horner's Handmade Beginnings. So I decided to give it a try. This is my most complex patchwork yet, still pretty simple I know. It was fun, I got to use fabrics I had and got to feel like a real artist choosing the colour combinations.

I like how it turned out. Not sure I will keep it in the living room, it looks a bit bedroom-y to me. Or at least it doesn't quite seem suited to our living room. Maybe because a bunch of the fabric was from bedsheets?

Henry is really into pulling this funny face the past few days. These pictures are the best I could get to show it. It's always a bit different but always involves squinty eyes. And it doesn't mean he's happy but he's not usually too upset when he does it, despite how he looks. I think he is just experimenting, and this is a funny experiment.

I am entering my pillow into this pillow party:

  1. This is really pretty, I love the colours you've used.

  2. I've wanted to try my hand at that pillow too. Nice!

  3. Hello! I like your pillow very much and haven't seen something like that! You have used beautiful colours and I think it goes very well with your armchair! It looks fun to make and perhaps I'll try that also!

  4. Lovely pillow. The color scheme is fantastic. I love patchwork:)
