Cushions – work in progress

(August 2021) Cushions are taking up my time lately! Pleased with the results of my recent iris cushion with a leadlight effect, and my birch trees series (images below) I’m combining a couple of the effects in a new way: to create a not-quite-landscape with vertical lines intersecting the horizontal, patchwork-like stitching.

Next challenge is to dig out my long-neglected sewing machine and make the backing covers. (A friend made the backing of my iris cushion, although I’ve made plenty of cushions and covers in the past. This may lead to a sewing session, to try and use the accumulated fabric stash…)
