A few weeks ago I'd prepared some stitchery to take with me when I was in hospital. I'd pieced together some leftover scraps from my Journey of a Quilter quilt, and used a pattern "Waverley Bag" by the Australian designer Leanne Beasley...
...the daisies are appliequed by hand, and the hand embroidery uses 2 strands of DMC embroidery thread. This was machine quilted very simply around the daisies and arpund the blocks using Aurifil 40wt thread...
...I like to keep the zipper covered, and used 2 different Tilda fabrics to make the cushion backing. Once the front and back of the cushion have been stitched together, the raw edges are covered with a binding strip, using the same method as binding a quilt...
...and here's the completed cushion, filled with a plump feather pad, ready to post off to it's new owner. I hope she'll be pleased with it!
