Inspired by this pin and wanting to brighten up our otherwise neutral bedroom a bit, I set out to make a colourful geometric cushion.
It was fun. I pieced the triangles together with some left over batting on the back to make the front panel and quilted it. To make the back panel I used some of the leftover black gingham/ check fabric from Noah's shorts and made an envelope opening as per this super easy tutorial.
If you’re new to quilting I totally recommend making something like this (but perhaps start with squares.)It’s obviously a lot less work than making a whole quilt and a great way to learn and practice.
As you can see the cushion totally goes with some of the art work on our bedroom wall. Top and bottom left: 2 pieces of Dee*construction prettiness (including the little water colour of Noah’s knees for winning this); Right: 'Ever-after' print from Foundry.
The kids love the cushion. Whenever they get a chance they leap into our bed and cuddle up with it.
She is NOT allowed up on the window sill by the way! Cheeky!
