Paisley Garden Chair Cushion and a Giveaway

I seem to have been working on my second garden chair cushion for weeks!!

You know what it's like. You cut out the fabric, then something else turns up, and it gets cleared away. You get the the fabric out again and make a bit more progress, then something else happens or you get distracted and it gets put away again! Well that's the way it's been for me making this quilted cushion. 

But hooray! It's now completed!

I just love this beautiful fabric with it's large paisley pattern. It's been in my stash for a while and it's so nice to see it put to good use at last. This mix of colours just to be one of my favourites!

For some reason it turned out even shorter than my first cushion shown below ..... even though I added a few inches to the length! It's a mystery!

But I love it anyway!

So now Chris and I don't have to race each other to the roof terrace to grab the chair with a cushion as now we have two!

Now we just need lots more sunny days so we can sit out in comfort and enjoy the garden. Really enjoying my sweet peas this year.......

Spencer seems to like them too!

Cute eh?

Talking of sweet peas.....have you entered the Summer Flowers Giveaway over at Mary Jane's Tearoom?

Lots of gorgeous goodies to be won including a Cath Kidston storage bag! 

Take care 'til next time.

  2. Your chair cushions are very pretty - I love both prints. Spencer looks quite comfy sitting in the doorway - he's so cute. :)

  3. I have all intentions of making some new cushions but I can't seem to put down my crochet hook. Love yours!

  4. Your seat cushion looks lovely Maggie.Pleased to see you have some lovely sweetpeas too, mine havent done very well this year, sad to say I put them in a pot in the corner and promptly forgot about them!

  5. Hello Maggie! I love your cushions! They are brilliant! I bet you would love the Vera Bradley website ( because her fabrics are so lovely. You can't buy the fabric, but you can enjoy looking at the bags! My new favorite is Tutti Fruitti. The pretty prints remind me of you.
    Spencer is so cute. I love him. He's such a nice pup!
    I hope you get a wee bit more sunshine this summer.

  6. They are both great Maggie!! Such nice summery colors and Spencer is just a sweet pea too! :)

  7. It's been too long since I have visited here. Gosh, you have been up to good! The cushions are not only beautiful but look so comfy too. Spencer is one mighty fine pup. ;-)

  8. The chair cushion turned out lovely, even if it is a bit short. I have seen any sweet peas (in person) in years. I love them. You are inspiring me to plant some next year! If I can get them out early maybe they'll bloom before it gets so hot.

  9. Ooh, I love paisley, so I think your new chair cushion is just lovely. And Spencer is so adorable - I always love seeing pics of him! =)

  10. Love how it turned out Maggie, the fabric is fab and such fun to see my tute being put to use again!!! :)


I always love to hear from you!
