The theme for the quiltie swap on Unlimited Textiles this month is "Layers"
I fancied doing something quite traditional for a change. As I have been working on some cream cushions in my patchwork class I thought it would be good to them in miniature. It was a little tricky resizing the pieces and the second one was easier to do.
We also have Stitch of the Month in Unlimited Textiles and this month it is Seed Stitch. I have incorporated it into the first quiltie so two jobs done in one!
I used rayon thread for the stitching and it has frayed a little in places. Unfortunately the more I tried to put it right the worse it went. In the end I decided to leave well alone.
The second has a piece of fabric I made tucked into the space to peep out. My actual cushion has 4 of these panels. I think this is my favourite one. I like it's simplicity.
