Flower Power

I made another real life sized patchwork cushion.

I used a new technique for me, using appliqué to sew a Dresden plate pattern. I used one with rounded edges as I think it's the prettiest.

This came together satisfyingly quickly - I completed the whole cushion front entirely by hand in one evening. I usually take at least a week to hand sew a cushion as I keep opting for ridiculously small patch sizes, but this was much faster!
