Mosaic Rose

Mosaic Rose - made with fusible applique

I recently completed this cushion, (finished with the magic of an invisible zip) which is a fusible applique version of a cushion I made a few years ago with Needle-Turn Applique.

The original cushion that I made (back in June 2010) looks like this.  You can see that one method, (fusible) ends up being a mirror image of the other, (needle-turn).

Here is a close up of the needle-turn applique.  This cushion was inspired by a really interesting cushion that I saw online, called the Orimono Pillow, available from anthropologie.  I really wanted the spaces between the applique to look like grout between tiles.

I’m really happy with this incarnation of it.  Come December, you will be able to try your hand at making one too, either in needle-turn applique or fusible applique, when the pattern is released as “Mosaic Rose”.

Needle-turn applique is a skilll that requires a little practice, but it is very rewarding.  If you enjoy sewing the binding onto your quilts, then chances are that you would enjoy needle-turn, because the action is very similar.

Have you tried it before? What did you think?

PS.Thanks for the compliments on the blog make-over. I can now reply to you in the comments, so check back later if you ask me a question.
