Over the past week, I've been preparing these pretty hearts and I've appliqued all 49 of them in place on a pieced background. This cushion cover has been machine quilted very simply, and it's been finished with a stripey binding (I absolutely LOVE stripey bindings). All of these fabrics are from the Little Sweetheart collection by Edyta Sitar for Laundry Basket Quilts, and were originally purchased as a fat quarter bundle from Cross Patch last year...
...this has been machine quilted very simply using a variegated pale pink King Tut quilting thread, a quarter inch from all the seams. This smart stripey binding is from the same Little Sweetheart fabric collection. The front and back of the cushion were layered together, wrong sides together, and the double fold binding was added the same way as binding a quilt, hand stitched in place on the back. I've used 2 more fabrics from the Little Sweetheart collection to make the back of the cushion cover, and a zipper has been added to the back to make the cover easily removable for laundering. A plump feather pad has been inserted and it's ready to be displayed in my spare bedroom.
