Cushion Cover for my Sis

I finished my sis's Persian tile piece into a cushion cover. I tried to emulate Shepherd Bush's pillow designs. As in their design the stitched pieces are not centralised. Not quite sure if I like that too much. Perhaps if the stitched piece was smaller it might work better.

I am using a 16" x 16" pillow insert, because I'd like a substantial border for the rather largish rectangular piece instead of a tiny strip ;)


Comment Notes: Thank you all for your kind comments. Appreciate it tremendously. Of course Karen and Su, you can 'steal' my idea. It wasn't mine to begin with :p

  1. Very pretty stitching and finishing. I see what you mean about putting the design off center, I tend to be very symmetrical so initially I thought it looked a little odd, but the more I looked at it the more I liked it ;)

    How wonderful to 'meet' you, now that we are partners in Fair and Square. I am looking forwards to stitching for you in our first exchange. You must let me know what you are hoping to receive, colours, etc. This will be so much fun!
