Patchwork cushions

Ends of fabric rolls have been encroaching the corners of the studio and getting underfoot, so we've laid out these small yards of linen, cotton and damask to be used for patchwork cushions and quilts.

Close to our heart is the task of cherishing any piece of fabric possible, offcuts, remnants, samples and backing cloths have all found their way back into the day's design work. So often designs and new colour ways begin with some chance beauty found at the overlap of a print or the little stacks of edges left after cutting patterns.

Jeannette Mayne, began with Spacecraft years ago working her patch-working wonders into our studio offcuts to make the patchwork cushion one of our favourite objects.
