It's been a long time since I have done any needle turn applique or hand quilting!
I totally enjoyed making my Lovely Liberty cushion and hope I can find some time to make another one soon.

First I selected my fabrics.
Who dosen't love Liberty fabrics, the colours the and the designs made it hard just pick
16 for this cushion. Millrose Cottage is where I purchased these fabrics, they have a ROOM full of Liberty fabrics, the largest range I have ever seen in one place!

Then it was time to start the applique.
I used silk thread and Jeana Kimball size 10 straw needles.

Once all the applique was complete I hand basted the cushion front ready for hand quilting.

For the batting I used Hobbs 100% wool batting. I love this batting as it is very easy to needle and had a high loft that really shows off the quilting.

I also loved using my clover hoop, this is much smaller than my usual quilting hoop but was perfect for this small project.

Once I finished quilting I decided to make a button back for the cushion using some of the left over fabric to make covered buttons.
