Scrap Happy new year

January 15, 2019

finished – another boro cushion, companion for the one made in October

in 2017 I stitched several kimono shapes from scraps and used one here

they were fun to use in different projects

I use rags on the back for a second layer to stitch into

the “wrong side” is interesting in its own way

all the stitching threads are thrums – yarn left over from weaving on the floor loom

the back is an indigo dyed shibori sample

as it wasn’t wide enough an indigo strip was added on each side

the piping was made from more indigo dyed cotton

and the piping cord was a very heavy weaving yarn

here is the link to other happy stitchers

    I love these boro cushions of yours. They look soft and comfortable as well as beautiful, with the softness of well-worn fabrics. Beautiful, and enviable, work.

      Kate – it is fun to look at the cushions and remember where all the pieces came from, and if they get worn I can just add another patch.

      Cathy – thank you, I have a boro quilt on my bed I made a couple years ago so the look nice together.
