Rainbow Cushions

This is a really great way to use striped fabrics and Dresden Plates. A little ‘fussy cutting’ and you can create rainbows round your cushion. Of course they don’t have to be this bright – you can get quieter stripes than this one. These were made for a teen’s bedroom.

They’ve had a bit of abuse down the years but have worn well as they were machine machine pieced and appliqued. Find the pattern for them on the website.

The border stripe was a different rainbow stripe print but went well with the original (not enough left after several projects used it earlier).

No matter how hard we try to use up our stash, somehow there is never quite enough or not quite the right colour and we have to go out and buy more.
