Cathedral Window Silk Cushion
This design makes a Silk Cushion using Cathedral Windows. The finished cushion is approximately 14 inches (35 cm) square.
This elegant silk cushion uses a technique that resembles Cathedral Window but is far easier to do. The cushion consists of nine folded squares of silk dupion with silk brocade windows. The design is framed with strips of the dupion with the brocade further adding richness in the outer corners.
The cushion was designed by Lynne Edwards.
