For this charming set of matching cushions we used the design Three Roses with 3 color cards.
The finished size of each cushion is about 22" x 22".
Besides embroidery threads (either polyester or rayon), you will need polyester craft felt, which works as stabilizer and batting.
For each cushion, you will need:
Out of silver white fabric, cut a square measuring 8 1/2" x 8 1/2".
Out of black fabric,
Sew the black 2 1/2" x 8 1/2" strips to the upper and lower edges of the silver-white square.
Sew the black 2 1/2" x 12 1/2" strips to the left and right edges of the working piece.
Sew two golden triangles to the left and right edges of the 2 1/2" x 5 1/2" strip. Repeat with the remaining triangles and strips. You will get 4 parts like this:
Sew the parts to the central piece one by one.
Place the top on the felt square. Smooth the fabric with hands - the felt will cling to the fabric. Mark the position of the roses inside the silver square. Hoop both layers and embroider design of the Three Roses in any color choice:
Quilting and Finishing:
We quilted 2 layers (embroidered top and the polyester craft felt backing) without backing. We quilted in a free-motion style.
When you are done with the front panel of the pillow, take the other piece of felt and the black square. Spread the felt on your working table, cover with the fabric. Smooth the fabric, so the felt clings to the fabric. Quilt the 2 layers in a free-motion style.
Press both quilted pieces with steam. Square both pieces and check that they are of the same size.
Place the back panel face down, and cover with the front panel face up. Align all edges. Pin them together. Sew them together along the edges with seam allowance 1/4". Leave an opening about 10" long.
Through the opening insert a pillow form.
Sew the opening closed.
Finish the raw edges with the binding. The pillow is ready.
