Pushions to Go

Some say Cushions and others say pillows. I say Pushions! These two pushions are destined to find a home in the US and UK.


Pushion 1 is made for Sally in the US. I had made a block for the Home Sweet Home QAL, which I wanted to make into a pushion. It features the Moreton Bay Fig. Moreton Bay Figs (Ficus Macrophylla) are whopping big rain forest trees, indigenous to the east coast of Australia.


Pushion 2 is made for Lynne (Lilysquilts) in the UK. I made a little EPP centre block filled with British things and framed it in a Spotlight British themed fabric.



Pushion 1 has an envelope backing and pushion 2 has a fancy covered zip. Both are trimmed with binding.


I hope they arrive soon x

  9. Oh your fig tree is so darn cute Jane. There s a great Australian film featuring one of those called 'the Tree' and filmed near Boonah. Have you paper pieced or appliquéd your version?
