Mothers Dream Patchwork Cushion

I finished up my Mother's Dream patchwork cushion today! yay I'm so happy with how it turned out. It was a dream to put together, and I'm pleased that all went smoothly; even the binding! Love it when this happens!

Above is a corner of our living room :) do you like my new CK curtains!? I would show you more but it's so bare! - which is why I'm trying to decorate the place with handmade goodness. I pulled fabrics based on the colours I thought would work nicely with them, although now I've made it I think the curtains look alot more pink than green? so I think I'll make another one with more pinky tones next time. I finished off the pillow a couple of days ago but added the binding today as it needed a little something extra, I think the stripes really pop against the cream cotton. Definately my favourite out of my other handmade patchwork cushions. You can find the tutorial for it here. Have you been working on anything fun recently?

Oh, and don't forget to enter my fabric giveaway here! I'm giving away a stack of Anna Marie Horner Little Folks fat quarters !! I'll be announcing the winner tomorrow! Jessie, xo

  9. I find this cushion is perfect for that corner. You have made the ideal place to sew, read and have a cup of tea! The striped binding is a fantastic idea, the cushion wouldn't be so lovely without it :)
