Finished – be it Flower, or Rabbit.

Last night I finished the “Multipetal Flower Cushion”.  Actually, it’s a terrible name, but I have not yet come up with a better one.  Having recently purchased some cushion forms, filled with feathers, (from IKEA) I decided to make the whole cushion cover bigger than I had planned.  This meant adding a border around the front.  I chose to use the same fabric, but made it a bit more spiffy by mitring the corners.

I am really happy and excited about the whole tile/grout look, but admit that Mr Matching Pegs is probably right, about the fact that the design itself doesn’t quite work.  The leaves need to be different, perhaps not so attached, or of a more uniform colour than the flower.  It was such a pleasure to make, I am sure I will try designing with this look again.

Luke, being much more Minimalist than me, prefers the back.

It was quite a struggle to get these pictures, it is exceedingly grey around, here, which is not surprising for winter in Melbourne.  I had to turn our arm chair around to face the window, which was not that bright because it faces south (like a north facing window if you live in the Northern Hemisphere – they get less light, and no direct sunlight, if they face directly south).  In “real life” the cushion is slightly warmer in colour.

If you would like to see a spectacular quilt which is similarly inspired by grout, check out Cathy’s delicious “Fassetted Mosaic Quilt top”, it will thrill you.

So, want to help me name this design?  Just don’t call it Rabbit, because it is a flower (he he he)!

  1. well the noisy one said it was a bunny lol. you cant call it rabbit thats the name of vivs dog!!! LOL
    It looks really nice Claire, youve done a great job. Im terrible at naming things so I wont even go there 🙂

  2. Well I love it – maybe the leaves could have been in tones of green/gold/orange. I didn’t think of a rabbit until you said it though.

    Happy Birthday too – hope you had a lovely day
    Cheers Jennifer

  3. Well, I have finally made it back here after our time away, to check out your amazing needleturn tile cushion. I adore it. I had a look at your previous post where you drew the pattern, I am just going to have to try this method. Your cushion turned out so well. I will have to buy that book too I think. Lovely to see you met Andi, isn’t she gorgeous? Are you going to make another one? Cathy xo
