Beautiful Bench Cushions – Liberty Quilting Cotton

Sarah from the studio has made these Beautiful Bench Cushions for her pew using some of the festive quilting cottons. I asked Sarah about the project.  “The pew comes from a chapel I attended as a child and is therefore very special to me in my home.  I’ve been wanting something to embellish it and make it more inviting as a place to sit.  I especially liked the poinsettia quilting cotton fabric when it arrived in the studio so it was a natural choice.” “I saw a picture of a buttoned cushion in a magazine which gave me the idea …

Lovely Liberty Boxes

Nick was working in the studio when he came up with this great idea of making Lovely Liberty Boxes to fill a tricky space.  You can find the inspiration and tutorial below. So, it turns out that finding a storage solution that is functional, cheap and aesthetically pleasing is a very hard task indeed- especially when the shelf you intend to put them on has very odd dimensions and nothing standard seems to fit! This is just the problem Nick was having at the same time he was helping out in the office at Alice Caroline. Looking around the studio …
