Wonky Log Cabin Cushions

After an obscene quote for cushions to match my new chair, I decided to make my own.

I was thinking  chocolate with subtle aqua and green which would match my new sofas and these beautiful

fabrics Lantern Bloom by Laura Gunn were just the thing

Then I fell in love with the cushion on the cover of this Stitch magazine


stitchMag  by Malka Dubrawsky who has a stunning Blog -

Stitch in Dye.  Malka does some fabulous fabric dyeing and her quilts and pillows are gorgeous.


A few more fabrics were added to the mix, then the cushion seemed to take on a life of its own!

Now got to go and try something slightly more subtle……
