Camping Cushion

I've been finishing things today! First up to show you is a cushion.

This is for friends of ours who last summer gave us a car boot load of plants to fill out our newly de-jungled garden. In my early pregnancy, I wasn't able to thank them with anything hand made, but now a year later I've finally got to make them this cushion.

They've just bought a new motor home, so this Tula Pink pattern seemed perfect! Plus I know they love orange!

The fabrics are Pearl Bracelets in green and cream, Botanics in orange, Sketch in black, Art Gallery Oval Elements in orange and a piece of blue fabric I inherited from my Gran. I've used the same blue fabric for the back of the cushion.

The camper is raw edge appliqued using a mixture of machine blanket stitch and straight stitch in grey Aurifil 50w. The quilting is also in Aurifil 50w in a variegated blue 2021 and a solid green 1147 (?). It's finished about 17" x 17" and I added a bit of the orange binding to finish off the envelope back.

I've got a few more finishes to show you in the next few days - I just need some help to photograph them!
