As I was in the mood to brighten up our Spanish naya I finally got around to making some cushions that I have been meaning to make for simply ages.
I had bought these nautical fabric squares (curtain weight cotton, which makes a much more sturdy cushion) on Ebay for far too much money simply because I had just the project in mind for them.
Many months later I came across the fabric online at Dunelm Mill and it would have cost me considerably less had I found this before. I would also have been able to fussy cut them so as not to lose any of the design, which I would have preferred. But hey ho, such is life.
I searched through my fabric stash and found some woven fabrics that were a similar weight to the squares.
I stitched some nautical phrases on to osnaburg fabric and then pieced together various blocks to go around my nautical squares.
I was very pleased with the final result.
It has also has inspired me to design a nautical quilt, time permitting. So maybe sometime in the not too distant future. Watch this space.
