A sashiko cushion with vintage buttons


Morag René posted a photo of this gorgeous sashiko cushion in the UK Quilters United Facebook page a few minutes ago, and said I could show it off here too.  Love the button details on the back and the red sashing.  She wrote -

My first Sashiko cushion cover finished, 20"" square overall. Managed to find "vintage " buttons which I thought had a vaguely Japanese feel, in the large tin I inherited from my mum. MANY thanks to Susan Briscoe for the designs and guidance in her wonderful book. I really enjoyed learning & stitching.

Fabrics and threads are by Olympus.
