Appliqued Butterfly Cushions.

Over the last couple of weeks I've been working on these commissioned cushions.
An appliqued butterfly with 3D flowers please.
I love these type of projects.


 I used a batik as the background and for the butterfly I used hand dyed fabrics that I get from a lovely lady at the Edinburgh quilt show.


I used a blanket stitch on my little Janome 601 to do the applique


This one has half square triangle borders....


.. and this one has plain borders.  I free motion quilted both of them on the table top.


Next I made some 3D leaves and sewed them in position.


 These are the 3D flowers, handmade.  Click here for my tutorial for these flowers.
I think they add a nice touch to these decorative cushions.

 Of course feathers had to be featured somewhere! Well everywhere actually :)






 Both cushions measure 20" square finished.

                            
I really enjoyed making these but now it is almost time for Bonnie's mystery quilt.
Next week.........
Thanks for visiting today.

Echo the previous comments. Your quilting has a "fairy-land" feel to it....ethereal/dreamy. Thank you so much for sharing this glimpse into your colorful world!! Hugs..........

Wonderful, as usual, girl! I love using 3D accents on quilts, and I am addicted to machine applique using blanket stitch. In fact, I have never used satin stitch - wouldn't even know where to start. You are such an inspiration to me.
