A Woman, a Machine, a Plan and 50 Yards of Fabric...Amnicon!

Ready to dive into my most ambitious upholstery project yet!  I am sewing 45 cushions for 3 sofas and 16 chairs for the lodge at Camp Amnicon on Lake Superior. Many of the  cushions will be pieced, using 35 different fabric in a color scheme of predominantly plums, greens, deep teal, and bits of other colors for sparkle.  I have all the measurements,  fabric, zippers, thread, and cording, plans drawn out and I am ready to begin cutting.
Experimenting with fabric combinations...
Wish me luck!
