unicorn #2 cushion cover

When my husband’s niece Andrea saw a photo of the unicorn cushion cover for Kate, she revealed that she also loves unicorns. This was shouting for one more unicorn project! Since my paper piecing skills got better, I decided that I need a more challenging unicorn pattern. So I got on the web and found a unicorn pattern with more pieces – designed by Robynie from Robynieland.

I had the pattern a few days just on the computer before I had the right spirit to start with the project. The only question I asked Andrea, was what color she would like for the background. Andrea went for turquoise to match her other cushions and decoration elements in her lounge.

I have used fabrics from the 2016 collection designed by Alison Glass – the same as for the “Et Dömsche” placemats.

Once the piecing was done I had to decide on the quilting design. At the moment I prefer quilting with the walking foot and thought that quilting each color of the mane and face separately would underline the fabulous unicorn design. I got out my box with the quilting threads and selected the matching colors.

All threads used are either Gütermann Sulky Cotton 30 or King Tut quilting thread from Superior Threads.

And a few detail photos from the back :

I was so keen to send the unicorn cushion cover and the “Et Dömsche” placemats that I forgot to take photos of the finished cushion cover. I have used the turquoise solid fabric also for the back and I have quilted with straight lines using the walking foot.

Thanks for stopping and happy quilting
