Cushions using picture panels can share your interest or passion with others and in turn decorate your rooms.
Whether your interest is for animals either on the wild side or domesticated, there are lots of different types of picture fronts.
Every type of hobby can be found in these picture cushion fronts including transport, flowers, fairies, birds, sea life and many more.
A picture cushion may overwhelm a room but there could be one main picture interest and then other plain cushions made using colours or patterns to match the theme.
Quillows can be made using picture fronts as these can be quilted to make parts of the picture stand out and almost appear 3D.
This is where art and comfort comes into its own. Cushions using these panels are very decorative and comforting especially if where you live doesn't allow any pets.
These also bring nature into your home many types of birds and flowers can be shown on these panels. A wolf is a wonderful creature but not one you would want to live with.
There are those that have special interests for children as well showing well loved characters.
Another favourite of mine and one where the main picture front can be enhance with the fabric on the inside quilt.
What could make you feel more cozy than to cuddle up, in front of the telly or just to read a book on the settee, wrapped in your favourite animal etc..
can be used as part of the Childs bed or bath time routine to help them calm
down after a busy day or for them to enjoy a bedtime story before bed.
Also if they are not feeling well then these could be used as a comfort blanket on the settee.
As these fold up and are easily portable then what could be better when getting your child used to sleeping in a different room or house than his/her own comforting cushion/quilt.
These quillow cushions are really good for college/university students who sometimes need an extra layer for warmth or to give to a friend staying over. They may also like the reassurance of a familiar cushion when they first leave home.
In fact these are extremely versitile for all the family as if any elderly members have to move into a residential home then these can give a welcoming individual touch. These could also remind them of a devoted pet they once had or maybe had to leave behind.
Another type of sewing using these pictures is in the making of wall hangings. These pictures can be so beautiful and the fabric showing so much detail then it is worth turning them into fabric art.
Again different aspects of the picture can be quilted to make some parts stand out.
