Coming Soon.....


Coats Duet Threads

In store in February
Starting with the top 50
perfect for all machine sewing.


don't just use white when quilting experiment!


Hope you all had a great weekend, I know the weather was miserable
but I was stationed at my stall in Old Spittlefields Market in London
on Saturday, could have been busier, but all the stall holders said it was the worst Saturday they have done in a long time.
Funny enough my fabric fat quarts sell far better than hand made stuff which is what I wanted anyway).
But notice people see a cushion I have made and want to copy it, so one customer brought the boho mini charms and matching fabrics, she can now go onto my blog and follow the instructions.
I am now going to make little kits up of cushions for this idea.

Make Boho Cushion


Boho Cushion 16"


All you need
1 pack mini charms (or 25 x 2.5" squares)
2 x 1.5" by 11" strips (mine in snow)
2 x 1.5" by 13" strips (mine in snow)
2 x 2.5 by 13" (mine in spot)
2 x 2.5 by 17" (mine in spot)
1 piece of batting at least 16" square
1 FQ fabric for reverse
(1 for front 1 for reverse, these could be the same or different)

I have used Boho by Urban Chik's for Moda
Moda Essential dots in Cocoa
Moda Basics in snow

Also 1 zip, full length unless you make an envelope opening



 Use 25 of the 42 charm squares
in rows of 5 x 5
Also shown are the other front pieces laid out



Using 1/4" seams for everything
sew your rows of squares together
as above and press


Next join the rows together
press, thats the middle complete!


Taking your 2 x 1.5" by 11" strips
mine in snow


Sew  the 2 strips to each end of your squares
iron and trim


Repeat this step for the longer
2 x 1.5" by 13" strips
iron and trim



taking your 2 x 2.5 by 13"
sew to each end of your square
iron and trim


Repeat this for your 2 x 2.5 by 17"
on each side and trim


now trim cushion to 16" square


taking your wadding piece 
lay your cushion front on it - pin


Then Quilt
I have quilted mine in tram lines either side of the seams created by the squares.
Put aside


Reverse - envepole opening
take your FQ
longer lengtherr horizontal
cut in half
so you should end up with 2 pieces 
approx 
50cm x 28cm or 20" x 11"


On one of the longer edges fold iron and fold again
I have zigzaged stitched to show edge

On other edge I have bound in bias binding
but this can also folded, ironed and sewn.

Trim your longer edges to 16"
lay this right sides together on cushion front
pin and sew all edges and sew again, 
this to make sure you catch all fabric and to reinforce seams
The cushion will end up approx. 15 1/2 " square
this always makes a 16" infil look plumper
