making :: spring time patchwork cushion

Even though it's not spring yet, I'm feeling a bit springy, so I've been making a spring-inspired patchwork cushion cover ...

So many people have been buying my Fan fabric in yellow and orange lately, that I thought I had better grab a couple of panels and make something for myself. The floral is a Liberty Print (though I can't find its name - anyone know?) from my stash.

I cut out basic squares of all three fabrics and, for a change, arranged them diagonally ...

This cover was cut, sewn and finished over a weekend :: the perfect project for me (ensuring it doesn't become yet another work in progress shoved in the cupboard)!

And, it goes nicely on the new verandah chairs!

Handprinted "Fan" fabric (in quilting weight and medium weight) available in the Yardage Design online shop.

Have a great Thursday!

What a gorgeous cushion, Nic. It must be so satisfying to make something using fabrics you have designed. Love the little pincushion too.
