Collette Class Requirements for Tulip Cushion

 Foundation Pieced Tulip Cushion


For this design I used a multicoloured paisley fabric, quilted with a variegated thread and a contrast fabric for the sashing and binding. I chose a range of plain and print fabric and a small print cream on cream for the foundation pieced tulips. For the half square triangles I used a paisley cream on cream fabric, which I topstitched with cream thread.

In this class you will learn how to transfer and complete a set of foundation-pieced tulips, these will be set on point and topstitching will add detail to the design.

During the class you will learn the skills and techniques used to complete a foundation pieced cushion front, we will discuss the finishing and fastening options to complete your cushion at home.
