Mosaic rose cushion

Code : CG006

Mosaic Rose - Cushion Pattern by Matching Pegs

A graphic cushion that can be created via needle-turn or fusible appliqué. Use lots of scraps that you are sentimental about, or as little as two different fabrics. Savour the experience of needle-turn appliqué or make it fast and fuss-free with fusible web.
Close Up of the Needle-Turn Applique on Mosaic Rose
Square cushion 18” x 18” (46cm x 46cm).


  • 60cm (24”) of Cotton fabric for the cushion background.
  • Scraps of appliqué fabrics that add up to a fat 1/8th for the rose and a fat 1/8th for the leaves.
  • Threads to match the appliqué fabrics.
  • 20” x 20” Cushion Insert (50cm x 50cm).
  • 16” Invisible zip (40cm).
  • Sewing machine with a zipper foot and an invisible zipper foot (optional).
  • 2 sheets of A4 overhead transparencies, or similar transparent material.
  • Fine permanent pen, e.g. “CD Writer” and a pencil.
  • General sewing supplies.
  • Iron and Ironing board.

For Needle Turn Appliqué

  • Fine tipped fabric markers (permanent or temporary) that make a highly visible, fine line on your appliqué fabrics (the line will be turned under, out of sight).
    I use 03 Zig Millennium markers.
  • 30cm (12”) of freezer paper.
  • Very fine Straw/Milliner’s needle:
    I use Size 11 Straw Needles by Jeana Kimball of Foxglove Cottage

For Fusible Appliqué

  • 30cm (12”) of fusible web, (91cm or 36” wide roll).

The needle-turn skills required for this pattern mean it is best for someone who has tried needle-turn before. Try fusible appliqué instead if you are a beginner.


I am no longer designing and selling patterns, but I’m very proud of the work I created, so I have left the patterns detailed here as a record of my endeavours.
