Wreath Cushion Pattern | Sharon Keightley Quilts

Lately I have been sorting through my pile of quilts and have come across some of my long lost treasures. I thought I would share some of my memories of making these lovely quilts, cushions and table runners with you.

First on the list is the Wreath cushion, made quite some time ago now. I loved making this cushion from start to finish. It was one of those projects where everything seemed to fall into place just the way I had imagined it.

The center flower has some of my most precious fabrics, the floral one being an all time favorite and I no longer have any left in my fabric collection. ( I wish I did )

I love, love, love brown, boring to some but I just can't live without it. So the leaves in this cushion are made with a beautiful floral brown fabric. Just perfect for the autumn weather we are currently having. 

You can also see that I have a thing about circles, they seem to pop into all of my quilts and these ones are no exception.

I quilted this cushion with a fine silk thread in a echo fashion. Ooh I love silk thread too......
