Project Destash #3 | Entrance Cushion {quilting}

Monday, 4 August 2014

It took me forever to find inspiration for an entrance bench cushion. I have been thinking about it for a year. I made the current cushion ages ago, and it is so bland in our entrance which does not get a lot of light that I knew I wanted something to add a splash of colour. 

And then I was tidying up my Pinterest boards and found the picture of a blanket that could wok as a cushion with a simple colour scheme - classic but still interesting.


Also it is an opportunity to seriously destash with pretty colours.  This colour scheme is of course close to the blanket, and it reflects what I have in my stash and want to use up. I was not going to go with red - but it is one tone I don't use often but have a bit of, so I decided to stick with it. 

This project is going to take much longer than my other destash projects but one that will probably make the most impact in terms of interiors so I am happy to take my time over it. Any tips the experienced quilters have for me before I embark in this?

  1. I love that bold, blue print. It'll be interesting to see how you wish that pink so the other three don't seem so patriotic.
