Soft Curved Piecing Cushion

The weekend has seen a little bit of time spent in the sewing room - in between some 
gardening, some shopping for a new duvet cover and general household chores.

I did get the Yoko Saito quilt blocks all put together with their sashing. 
It is so good to have it all in one piece, even though one block had to be made 
smaller - whoops. The Clover Block was too big so a few applique pieces had to be 
either taken off all together or relocated - not a biggy  - at least it was too big rather 
than too small!

I made my last cushion for my Cushion Club Class. The technique for next month is
Soft Curved Piecing. It is a free rotary cutting technique where you cut without a ruler 
to make gentle curves. Piecing all those curves is so much easier than it looks.

A good resource for this technique is the Jean Wells book, "Intuitive Colour and Design".

  1. Very cool. I made cushions this weekend too. From all recycled material.
