Another new cushion.....

Following on from my last post when I showed you an 'improv pieced' cushion that I had made, I thought I'd share another cushion that I have made since then.  It is not 'improv piecing' but it is a 'modern' style.

The pattern is a pattern by Suzy Quilts called 'Modern Fans'.  It is a little on the tricky side as it has curved piecing but, Suzy walks you through these with her online tutorials of how to best approach curved seams.

As I was unsure about sewing the curved seams, I thought it best to start with one block and make a cushion to test out how I felt about them before I launched into sewing a whole quilt top.  With this in mind, I used the same solid fabric colours that I had used for my last cushion so that they would coordinate nicely together.

Cushions are also the perfect size for practising free motion quilting, so before I made the pieced block into a cushion, I quilted it using a mixture of straight-line walking foot quilting and free motion quilting.  Overall I am very happy with the results and I now have two new cushions to decorate my home!!

Thank you for visiting and until next time 😃xx

  8. Curved piecing gives me the heeby geebies - not something I would tackle willingly. You've done a great job though! I really love the colours you've used too and your quilting just adds the special extra touch.
