You created a beautiful cover! Your drawing skills are wonderful, especially considering it is fabric. Smiley

I am looking at all of the wonderful cushion covers for inspiration in the next round!

I kicked my own butt for missing this round but at least I will be in round 2!

Everyone here did a fabulous job...and I am still secretly plotting to steal a few of the cushions if I get a chance... Smiley

Clearly, we saved the best cushion cover for last. Smiley

Today my angeled pillow was delivered, and is beyond anything I could have asked for.

Sneaky woman!  Cheesy alwaysinmyroom was my secret angel!


My favorite colors, with leaves and so well made! She even put matching fabric on my card.



Inside the card she wrote, "I am not the best at embroidery..."


She's kidding, right? How beautiful and even are those stitches!? Alwaysinmy room is made of awesome, wrapped in genius!  Smiley

The whole swap was wonderful and thank you to Lime and PJ for organizing.

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! Cheesy

Glad I did not blow up the lab...Cheesy  I will try this again on a larger quilt.

Happy cushions all around!

That is a beautiful cover and great example of the workmanship that alwaysinmyroom puts into everything she does.

Thank you to silentblair and alwaysinmyroom for making the end of this swap so happy! You were both such wonderful angels!!
