& More Patchwork Cushions!

I stitched up a blue brother cushion to match my red one. I’m happy to say the lapped zipper was a success on the blue one, and is nice and straight! :)

I used the same fabrics on each cushion front, with the only difference being the red and blue fabrics, and the direction the run. I thought it would be more appealing to the eye to have similarities, but some differences too.

The backs of the cushions are also the same, with horizontal feature fabrics, and a top and bottom in the front colours. Here’s a squiz at the back of the blue cushion. I’m so happy to say the lapped zipper worked out perfectly on the blue cushion – I must’ve been so tired when I did the red one!

I’m really happy with how these turned out (minus the wonky lapped zipper on the red cushion), and I especially love the ric rac trim.

I’m onto my next commission now, and will be posting some details soon so stay tuned!

Happy crafting adventures.

  1. Love the way you brought those dramatically different colors (red and blue) together using the other common fabrics. Something to think about in my own projects…
