Jubilee cushion

I couldn't resist Makower special line of fabrics I love London, and because I couldn't decide which fabrics I liked best, I treated myself to a lovely FQ bundle, with all 11 designs. With the Jubilee coming soon, I thought our house really NEEDED a lovely Union Jack cushion. I had seen some gorgeous cushions on Flicker so I knew I needed one!
Anyway I pieced my cushion on Monday night and when I looked at it, I felt it wasn't quite right.
Yes, the white strips around the middle cross were missing. So I unpicked my top yesterday afternoon and added the white strips that I felt were missing. I think it looks much better now, what do you think?
For the backing, I used a tea towel I bought last year for the Royal Wedding, a perfect fit for my cushion.

  2. Loving your fabrics.
    I have been driven mad by a Union Jack this last month. Its such a tricky one isn't it? I have a tutorial now on my blog if you fancy checking it out. I would love to know what you think.
    Kind regards

  3. I admit I bought all 11 also! I'm thinking a Union Jack quilt patchwork style with the fabrics. Your pillow is just lovely!
