Earlier this year we have painted the living room and when I took down the pictures from the walls, I decided that not all of them are going back. Reading a magazine I came over some wonderful bird photos by Leila Jeffreys. I thought this was a perfect idea how to re-decorate a lounge wall! I bought 2 cockatoo photos on Etsy, got them printed and framed. When I was looking for other paper piecing blocks, I found the matching motif : cockatoo paper piecing block by Quiet Play .
Both the front with the cockatoo block as well as the back of the cushion cover are quilted using the walking foot and Gütermann Sulky Cotton 30 thread.
Size : 16″ x 16″ / 40 x 40 cm – a standard inlet cushion size. Quilting details of the cockatoo and the cushion cover backing :
I have finished this cushion cover with a zipper on the bottom :
