About 3 years ago I was browsing in the old Material Obsession shop in Hunters Hill and I found a lovely vintage Dresden plate block.
Not sure what I would do with it, but knowing I had to have it I bought it and subsequently filed it away with all my other sewing bits and bobs.
Well I found it again recently and decided it was best made into a cushion so I could enjoy it every day.
I appliqued it by hand onto this lovely simple blue and white stripe background.
I made up the cushion this weekend and I'm really pleased with how it turned out - I used a cute pink multi-spot I've had in my stash for years - it looks so cute!
