In between furious, nay, slightly panicky knitting, and the looming Christmas advent calendars, I completed these three window seat cushions for my sister in law. They are for her guest bedroom which is decorated very simply in neutral colours, and she wanted them to co ordinate with some cream and brown tartan cushions on the beds.
I used two bits of vintage linen from my ever growing stash and used a very pretty faded floral too. The backs are very simple, made from two overlapping pieces and the fabric backs echo the front of the other cushion.
The middle cushion has been hand quilted for a bit of texture:
The pads are from Wool Soft, and are filled with British sheep’s wool- a much more earth-friendly alternative to Chinese feathers or synthetic fillers, and they feel satisfyingly heavy and plump. They also have a very faint smell of wool- gorgeous! I hope she likes them.
