At the weekend I was busy playing around with fabrics and lace and zippers and EQ printable fabric sheets, and a very special wedding photograph. This pieced together and quilted with my favourite Aurifil thread...
...once the cushion front was quilted, it was embellished with some vintage buttons. I even managed to find a sparkling "diamond" button for this special project! Then I was busy sewing the binding into place. The binding was folded over to the back, and hand sewn into place. This picture shows a close-up of the quilting, the lace trimming, and the vintage buttons, including the very sparkly one....
...and finally here my latest project. I bought a nice plump feather cushion pad from a local shop, Barretts of Woodbridge, to put inside this gorgeous cushion cover. This was a commission for a friend who wanted a unique gift for her in-laws to celebrate their diamond wedding anniversary.
