Finally completed - a mixture of 2 patterns by the Australian designer Rosalie Dekker. Made with a selection of Tilda fabrics, the Dresden plate was a "reject" from my Flowerville quilt. The centre was traced from the stitching guide of the final block for Simply Blessed - (both the Flowerville and Simply Blessed quilts were made a few years ago)...
...these Tilda fabrics really are so pretty. The stitching guide was smaller than the pre-printed design for the original Simply Blessed quilt, but it works really well as the centre for the cushion. I chose 2 embroidery threads is colours to compliment the colours of the cushion. Another Tilda fabric was used as the background - the dresden and the centre circle were both hand appliqued into place and machine quilted very simply...
...more Tilda fabric from my stash was used for the back and the binding. I've tried very hard to pattern match the 2 backing fabrics where they overlap for the zipper as they're the same design, just in different colourways. A plump feather pad approximately 2" bugger than the size of the cover has been squeezed inside to make it look full and plump.
