As I mentioned in my progress photos on Instagram, randomly placed patchwork blocks may look simple, but it takes me hours to settle on an arrangement. I came back to my sewing table at least a dozen times to play with these blocks before I was done -- and even then I switched a few around while I was finally sewing them together.
I used two layers of heavy batting to give this piece a little more padding and quilted it with a zig-zag stitch along the seams. I like the way it gives the cushion an old-fashioned look, making it appear slightly tufted.
The pad is backed in another favorite Denyse Schmidt print, and it's bound in yarn dyed Essex linen. Although technically this piece is reversible, I expect that we'll be keeping the colorful side up most of the time.
Patchwork...it's the greatest.
Nice work. Congratulations.ReplyDelete
