As my sewing date was snowed off on Saturday, I had a productive day alone in my sewing studio. I was busy finishing off a project I had initially started a few weeks ago, when I was on a "Pebbles" workshop with Alexandra Waylett at my local quilt shop KIS Quilting Lt in Ipswich. The pebbles panel was made with a selection of fabrics and textures - velvet, lace, satin, brocade, leather and sequins. I'd bought some teal coloured linen from KIS and it was perfect for finishing off this project. The quilting was done using a Mettler thread (this had been in my thread box for ages, and the colour matched the linen beautifully). I really enjoy sewing with different types of fabrics, and linen and batiks always look good together. I used a tried and trusted method for inserting a zipper into the back of the cushion cover so that it's removable...
...a strip of the same batik fabric was used for a double fold binding, and the cover was filled with a plump feather pad. Thankfully the worst of the snow had gone on Sunday, and I was able to do a photoshoot in the garden - the sun was shining, and despite it being bitterly cold, it was perfect weather for a photo shoot. I'm thrilled with the finished cushion, although Mr F won't be allowed anywhere near it!
