patchwork

Well the weeks have been catching up with me. I’ve been racking my brains about what to make for Mid Century Modern Show.  I’ve made some large heavily embroidered cushions, a few more ‘jigsaw’ cushions and some hand knitted ones (which I really want to keep as they are lovely).

But today inspiration struck - what about some patchwork cushions.  I’ve got loads of small scraps of fabric left over from making other things and a new crop of jeans to recycle.  It all feels like a plan coming together - or to quote properly  ‘I love it when a plan comes together’.

So here’s what I did - first of all I choose three fabrics to work with, denim from old jeans, some 50’s floral cotton and some wool/cotton blend.  I cut them into 10 x 10cm squares - yes cut with scissors!  I don’t have a rotary cutter but if I’m going to do more of these I think I will have to invest in one.

I then laid out the squares of fabric into a 9 patch block.  That’s a fancy quilters term - I bet you didn’t know that I was schooled in the dark arts of quilting.

When the 9 patch block is sewn together I cut it into quarters and arranged into pattern.

I did this with 4 9 patch blocks and ended up with this cushion front.  The pattern is called disappearing nine patch and I think I’ll be making more of these for the show
