Do you remember the "Circle Of Love" (designed by Rosalie Quinlan) stitchery project that I finished recently? Well I decided to turn this project into a cushion. The dresdens were made with a selection of Candy Bloom fabrics, (also designed by Rosalie Quinlan), and I wanted to use the same range of fabrics. I managed to find some Candy Bloom fabric online from Under The Mulberry Tree for the border, the backing and the binding...
...I quilted the front of the cushion very simply, stitch-in-the-ditch around the linen centre, then with straight rows half an inch apart on the borders, using a pink King Tut quilting thread. The back was made with 2 different fabrics from the Candy Bloom collection, and has a concealed zipper. The binding was machined into place, then hand stitched to the back . I'm really pleased with this one!
