Its been a bit rainy and grey here in Melbourne over the last weeks so here is one of my favourite fabrics, with raindrops, in my latest patchwork cushion..... Melbourne inspired!

Hand dyed

Another patchwork and quilted cushion. This one has the last scrap of a pumpkin orange fabric I hand dyed back in uni.... many years ago! I was mad for dyeing the fabric, mixing up the dye according to the formula in the recipe book, weighing out powder amounts. You never knew if it would come out the exact colour you chose but it was fun waiting and finding out. I made metres in various colours but only have tiny scraps left now. Not sure where it all went but I'm sure there's a lot of stuff made with that hand dyed fabric! I still love the orange, not too bright and a tiny bit patchy

How many cushions are too many?

 It's been a while but I'm back making again! School holidays and a big month and a half of birthdays kept me very busy! I've been making some new patchwork and quilted cushions, this fabric was very cute as it was, so my son got one of these! Sweet but not too girly! He has quite a few cushions on his bed now!
