The thoughts of Spring Blossom bring to mind the stunning Pink Cherry Blossom Festivals in Japan. We may not be able to travel to Japan to view the stunning blossoms in full glory, but we can still enjoy our very own spring blossoms. As Spring slowly fills our woodlands and hedgerows, the once bare branches begin to bloom. The brief blossoming of Rowan, Wild Cherry and Hawthorn are a magical sight, tightly wrapped in ancient folklore. The sights of the emerging foliage, scent of the blossoms and the return of birds and insects reminds us that we have emerged safely from another long winter with the promise that the world is alive with new possibilities.
This cushion has simple embroidery which can be enhanced with the simple technique of Inktense painting. There is no need to do the Inktense technique, this design would look stunning in simple Redwork, maybe using a thread colour that compliments your fabric squares. The pattern has easy to follow instructions to take you through this technique. The panels are joined with 2 ½” squares, so is a great way to stash bust.
The cushion back features a button closure and a scrappy 2” square buttonhole band. The cushion is then stitched around the outside to create a mock binded edge.
SIZE Approximately 18” square
