Are you sitting comfortably?

October 29, 2019

No? Then you definitely need my new project for Today's Quilter: the Pomegranate Cushion. It's another weekend-friendly project to make in the busy run up to Christmas and would make a lovely gift. In fact I'll be gifting mine (Mum, I hope you're not reading this...) and may have very carefully selected my fabric - by Edyta Sitar for Andover - to match a house I'm very fond of.

 

 

You may have a room in mind when you make yours and the motif would suit lots of different settings depending on the fabric you choose...here are a few suggestions for colourways.

If you've been reading this blog for a while you'll know how much I love anything Arts & Crafts and this design was inspired by a watercolour sketch in the Victoria & Albert Museum collection by William Morris, for his Fruit wallpaper design.

 

 

It's so interesting to see how this sketch evolved into the design that is still in print today. The final version mixed the pomegranates and citrus fruits together, while the olives - with their distinctive leaves - disappear.

And I must disappear myself...I've got a new quilt to bind!
