Southern Jewels Cushions

 Happy Mothers' Day!
I decided to make my Mum a cushion to co-ordinate with the Southern Jewels Quilt I made for her hospital stay. Her little unit needed a spread of rich Australian colours.Unfortunately I didn't have any of the original Warratah Under the Australian Sun fabric left for the big panel, but I used some of the new range featuring Banksias. I did still have some of the light gold and green  gum blossoms, so that tied it all in.
I made a purple one for my ex-mother-in -law's birthday too!

Here they both are, sitting on top of the fabrics in the range.
I made the cushions by using Leesa Chandler's Southern Jewels pattern and adapting one corner. The back is just a simple envelope style - no zippers or even buttons but you could do whatever you wanted there. You can get the patterns from me, or Leesa's website.
Have a great weekend,
Ann ♥
