Hunky Dory Cushions!

Well we've had some really wild weather here over the last few days, lots of heavy rain and gale force winds which resulted in our town losing its power for a few hours a couple of times. Each time it went off I was just about to do this post about my latest cushions. The plus side of losing the power though is that I now have a lovely clean and organised kitchen! One of those things I had been meaning to do for a while but it never seemed to be the right time. Anyway now that the wind has died down here are the two cushions that I made out of my Hunky Dory fabrics that I bought that I bought at my new LQS.

I decided to go with a simple log cabin design and frame the large scale print in the middle. The blue dot fabric is a Michael Miller print.

Then I just did some straight line quilting down each log echoing the frames. This pink one also includes some pink 'Swirly buds' by Heather Bailey and a print from Sandi Henderson's 'Ginger Blossom'.

The prints on the back of the pink cushion are by Anna Griffin (butterflies) and Lila Tueller.

This striped fabric was a great find at Spotlight which seems to go with a lot of other prints I have.
And although I'm tempted to keep these myself I have them up for sale in my shop!

Wow, very pretty. They don't work for anything in my decor or that of any of my friends (what can I say, we are all earth tone people) but I love the design and soft look.

Love your choices of fabric - they look great!

So, so pretty. How gorgeous are some of the colours in the Hunky Dory range. I had ordered some of the basics from Hancocks but they have gone missing (sniff, sniff).

Catherine! Your cushions are beautiful. I have a feeling these will be flying off the shelf!

Envious of the clean kitchen. Unfortunately mine needs an overhaul something fierce (kinda like your wind).

These are really nice. You have a knack of putting fabrics together.. I recently made a railfence top of a hunky dory jellyroll and am so not loving it... going to unpick it all! but love these!
