It was my SIL birthday a few weeks ago and she asked me to make her some cushions for her present. Now my SIL likes brown, and her house is full of lots and lots of brown things. So my first question after the request was " oh god, do I have to make you brown cushions again?". To my utter delight she answered "no - you can inject some colour". I didn't hang around long enough to allow her to change her mind!
I searched through my vast pattern collection and came across a Oh Fransson improv cushion that I bought a couple of years ago. I Pulled some fabric and matching solids and set to work.
I chose a straight line design for the quilting, with the lines about 1/2" apart and quilted with Aurifil #2000 (50wt), it gave the cushions such a fabulous texture.
I love everything about these cushions now they are finished, but improv takes an absolute age to do and I am not sure I can say I truly enjoyed making them. Still they look good and SIL loves them, so everyone's happy.
