ha ha I was trying not to bust at the seams and make it a surprise! Glad you got it so quickly and that it met one of your themes!
The embroidery is actually done with two strands of quilting thread...as a quilter, I was always intrigued by embroidery being used to hold the pieces to the batting...so really, your cushion cover was an experiment!
Glad I did not blow up the lab...
I will try this again on a larger quilt.
Happy cushions all around!
