I have really been on a roll with my cushion making and with my crocheting at the moment. This weekend I managed to completed two more cushions.
The first cushion was another made with beautiful Tilda fabrics. This time I used some of my scraps of fabric to make a 'dresden plate' and appliqued it to a quilted background square.
I quilted the background fabric with a diagonal one inch grid pattern before I appliqued the dresden plate to it as, it was proving difficult to know how best to quilt round the 'plate' otherwise. The 'plate' was then appliqued to the background using a small machine zig-zag stitch.
I finished the cushion by making an envelope-style back as I have done with all my cushions.
My second finished cushion was the crocheted cushion that I started last week after I completed my first crocheted cushion. It is made up of 16 solid granny squares in four different colours and then joined with a crocheted seam in a contrast colour.
I am really pleased with how this has turned out. I used the same fabric as my last crocheted cushion to make the back. As before, I used it to make an envelope-style back. One of my blogging friends, Linda from 'The Road to Oklahoma', asked me how I made the envelope-style back after I wrote about it last week which, led me to think that perhaps I should write a tutorial how it is made. I took lots of photographs when I put the cushion backs together at the weekend so that I can write a tutorial of how it is done. Look out for that later in the week!!
