Suffolk Puff Cushion

Here, is the completed Suffolk Puff Cushion. Lots of embroidery, beading and sparkles. 
Its in the blues and greens I just love.
The back is quilted with random curves.
I think I will make several little cushions to explore techniques.
See how to make The Suffolk Puff and an article I have written 
about them on a previous post. 
Remember to visit my tech site for videos HERE
and my art portfolio site for inspiration HERE

Suffolk Puffs or Yo Yo's?

I am teaching several different classes and at Creative Textiles we are making Circles and Curves over the next couple of weeks, in traditional and contemporary ways. Here, in a traditional patchwork form   is a sample of Suffolk Puffs.  It is the start of a small decorative cushion. I used a Clover Suffolk Maker which made the making of the Yo Yo's really fun and I have written another article for 'So Crafty' Magazine about making Suffolk Puffs and Yo Yo's.
