I am currently making a cushion for my mum as a Mothers Day gift. I am using Oriental Fabrics from Makower UK and they have been sent to me by Sewing-Online HQ (I manage their social media on a freelance basis…I am a lucky lady and love my job!)
I was sent half a metre of each of these fabrics:-
- Blue Leaf Motif On Light Blue Half Metre Patchwork Fabric
- Blue Leaf Motif On Dark Blue Half Metre Patchwork Fabric
- Blue Packed Flowers Half Metre Patchwork Fabric
I chose to make the cushion cover using English Paper Piecing. My lovely Auntie showed me how to do this. I am also very close to completing my first ever quilt made entirely from Owl fabric hexagons. I’ll post a photo once that is completed.
I will update this blog post with photos of my Mother’s day Cushion as I go along.
