Marianne: Quilted Frilled Cushion



This is one of our prettiest cushions, the frill is quite deep, single with a handstitched edge.

Long stitched ties  for the back closure put this particular cushion very definitely in the bedroom, dressing room, boudoir camp. Alternative closures are offered more formal use.

Here coffee coloured perle thread makes the  knots and cross stitches on off white silk. We could have chosen anything at all – a pale grey similar to the bed cover beneath or dusty pink or shoreline blue;  white on white is equally stunning.






Quilted cushion 

One of our timeless cushions, with a simple hand stitched frill.

Some embroidery, dressmaking and machining experience is needed, or it can be  completely hand sewn.  It’s small enough to make on the kitchen table so you can pick it up and put it down, take your time over it, to really enjoy the process and the therapeutic rhythm of hand  stitching little crosses…..

Fabric: silk responds well to both quilting and embroidered finishes  but any cotton lawn, muslin, organdie, light weight linen or wool will be equally as effective. We generally source our  silk dupions from James Brindley or  Pongees with enough stiffness in the hand to hold a good shape, but softer materials are just as effective, the only difference is that the frills drop more. We usually have this silk in stock, so check out the store. We used a DMC embroidery thread, however Anchor or any light crochet thread can work – just find your favourite colour.
