Scrappy cushions, not crappy ones, mind you. I recently moved into a new beautiful flat and wanted to put my stamp on it. So I used some leftovers of my favorite fabrics (including loads of Kaffe Fassett) and made 2 cushion covers with altogether 4 different patterns.
The one you see here is my favorite.
I love how the colors go together. I have a lot of clothes in these colors as well. Those of you who get to see me and my blindingly bright clothes (an attempt to distract from the bits I don't want you to see) on a daily basis know this. There is lots of turquoise and chartreuse in my wardrobe.
... and this is the back of that cushion. The colors come out a lot nicer if contrasted with some plain grays or cream colored fabrics. Something I first noticed on Elizabeth's "oh, fransson" Blog (http://www.ohfransson.com/oh_fransson/)
Elizabeth really has an eye for color and like me she prefers simple and modern designs. Check out her site, it's amazing.
This is the next cushion. again I only used scraps I had left over.
... and the back.
Note: all of these photos were taken on the iPhone and aren't as good as they could be. and all my quilts are done by hand. I don't own a sewing machine and frankly, I'm not sure I'd have the patience for one.
More to come later. Maybe the next post will be a new painting. Keep your fingers crossed.
