Boho Dresden Cushion

If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed I've been playing around with dresdens lately!

Today I can show you this....

Boho Dresden Cushion

This boho-style pieced dresden cushion is Jo's pattern, found in issue 10 of Love Patchwork & Quilting (pg77).

It's a really easy pattern to follow and I loved the addition of the 'on-trend' pom-poms!

I teamed some Amy Butler Soul Blossoms with Essex yarn dyed linen (black). The only change I made from the original pattern was to quilt the front and back.

I didn't have a round cushion filler, so it is temporarily (& poorly) stuffed with toy stuffing!

I really like how it has turned out, and so does no.1 daughter, who says it matches her other cushions perfectly (hint, hint)!!

  8. I have always been partial to a dresden as making an EPP dresden a few years ago was how I became interested in starting to sew. The pom pom trim really sets it off well. x
