Flying Geese Cushion


I made this a little while ago and forgot to share it here. It's a flying geese cushion that I will be teaching as a class at Patchfinders.



I hand quilted it with Sashiko thread and I'm especially pleased with my covered zip on the back! I had to snap some pictures quickly while I was at work because it's on display. The class is full now but I've put a tab to list all the classes I'm teaching at the top of my blog. Hopefully I will be teaching more in the new year too.

I'm working on a couple of hand sewing projects right now and although I'm enjoying it, I am starting to feel the need for speed! I am actually missing my machine so I think I need a little quick make this weekend and I have the perfect project in mind.

  11. A beautiful cushion, Lucy. Your hand stitching is so, so neat and even!!! 'Need for speed'... that's why I can only do hand stitching every now and then, even though I find it quite therapeutic.

  12. I really love the hand quilting and the cushion itself is beautiful. I'm always so inspired by your hand quilting projects. I'm definitely considering taking the dive with it on my mon's paper pieces quilt when it's finished.
