After weeks of thinking and planning I've finally made a start on making the patchwork cushion cover. I had lots of ideas but have decided to go for a design with rows of different sized rectangles of fabric. I wanted it to look a little like bricks but not as structured. The cushion is being made to compliment our teal coloured sofa and add some gorgeous scandi style fabric to our lounge. It has taken a while to get to this stage as I needed time to think and focus on the project but I'm so pleased I've made a start.
Here are a few photos of my progress so far.
I have cut all the pieces down to sizes I am happy with and have arranged the patterned fabric.
I've sewn the fabric pieces together, and now have the rows ready to sew together.
I love these fabrics and the colour combination. I'm not yet sure if I'm going to make piping, a zip or button fastening or how the back of the cushion will look yet but watch this space.
What patchwork or sewing projects are you working on at the moment?
