It combined a rose print cotton with lovely soft blue cotton and a pink which in the past had been a strong red but was now the perfect warm rose. Every cushion I made from this quilt sold immediately so I was very excited to find another almost identical at a fair last month.
In addition to the pink and blue fabrics the quilt also featured a green and red floral. When separated from the blue this gave the cushions a very different identity..much warmer and cosier. I decided to combine these red prints with a mangle cloth with a red stripe. You can find some like this at The Place (see stockists) a lovely shop in Lichfield..Paula sells fabrics as well as other craft supplies and gifts.
I love the way these cushions look great against white bedlinen, adding just enough colour to a calm bedroom or piled on a sofa like my lovely old chaise longue. I'm nearly at the end of this quilt but I'll be taking the cushions along to the Cotswolds fair at the end of the month.
