All that Glistens Cushion.

My cushion entitled All that Glistens came back today from the Great Northern Quilt Show, held in Harrogate last weekend, accompanied by a large purple rozette as it had won 2nd prize in the Cushions section. The rozette toned in beautifully with the cushion! I was also reminded that I hadn't shared pictures of it here before although I did blip the edge while I was working on it. You can find that picture here.
The cushion was inspired by Eastern carpets, the glitter of gold and the gorgeous array of contemporary yarns which I can never resist. It was machine couched, machine and hand quilted and hand beaded.
The Great Northern Quilt show is the only show that has a special category for cushions and although I don't make one for it every year I have participated quite a few times in the past and this year I fancied giving it another go. I loved making this one, specially the part where I got to play with my huge bead supply!
