A cushion from my own mola attempt

While I was making the cushion from the San Blas mola I also dug out the mola I had made last June in a class at the Embroiderers' Guild.

Although it would not be mistaken for a San Blas mola, it didn't look too bad seven months after it was made.




I figured I might as well turn it into a cushion too. I had enough of the bluey-purple layer to create a border, and bought another fat quarter to make the back.

My new cutting table makes this work a lot easier because the height eliminates bending.

Once again, this is slightly rectangular and smaller than most cushions, so I made the infill cushion rather than buying one.



















The cushion came up well. I rather like the small size. It makes a good conversation piece in my office.

Its such an interesting style of stitching. Looks brilliant as a cushion and making it small really allows the design to feature.

Thanks Katherine. I find it a really interesting technique. The bright colours help.
