Hand Quilted Cushion
The quilting instructions are clear and precise enough for a first -timer. The stitching is by hand and we follow the design already on the main fabric; the padding adds texture and the mixed threads add an extra dimensions to the given colours – they deepen or lighten in turn.
This is an easy one for anyone who enjoys the rhythm of hand stitching and the challenge of making something unique. There’s nothing complicated about it, the instructions are simple and even the zipped closure can be avoided if you prefer.
A machine isn’t necessary to make this cushion, it’s quick and easy to do, and there’s no worry about the design of the quilting pattern – whether you’ve got the proportions right or not – the basics have been done for you!
