The Patchwork Cushion By Susi Jay

So I’ve been given permission by the lovely Susijay, my mum, to post about this beautiful, one of a kind patchwork cushion I recently received from her. Its completely hand made, not a single sewing machine in sight and I can’t be more impressed!!!

This stunning cushion involves the tricky hexagon shape and must have taken pure patience and determination. Qualities I wish to death I had inherited.

So watch this space as she’s  hoping to branch out into quilts, phone cases and tea cozies. I don’t know about you guys but I can’t wait to fill my house with these beautiful things.

Knitting and crocheting is making one huge come back so how about showing some support for patchwork too! Who needs generic high street bought goods anymore…

  1. I love pieced patchwork, especially hexagons. I made a similar one (with much bigger and therefore fewer hexagons!) as one of my first ‘big girl’ sewing projects as a 12 year old. Wasn’t anywhere near as neat and beautiful as your mother’s but I kept it for years.
