Colouring Cushions…Colour Play

Sometimes its just nice to have a mindless moment and just be, or as I like to do, colour. I’ve made a Colouring Cushion, so that when I’m done colouring I have something useful to keep and use. Here’s Snaily.


When I was at school some of the students would create amazing doodle art on their folders, I wasn’t one of them. I would randomly make squiggles then colour each of the little sections made by my squiggles different colours. It was all about the interplay of colour for me. Now I’m doing that again! This is Doodle Two.



I doodle a design and then I carefully stitch it out, either with thick thread or my couching yarn onto the quilt top. And it really is a little quilt: fabric top, wadding or batting and a backing. Then I trim each design down, add overlapping fabric backs to hold a cushion insert, and bind the edges. Hence it’s a mini quilt, that can be coloured in or left as it is to be enjoyed.
