Cushion recipe for my niece and her pink bedroom

I made these for Christmas 2007 for my niece whose bedroom was in the midst of being decorated by her creative mum!-) But I only took these photos of the front and back of the cushions when I visited this May. They look great with the quilt, don't you think? I think my sister bought that from Next or Laura Ashley.

The fabrics were purchased from John Lewis on Oxford Street, except Amy Butler, Lotus Flower, this is from Liberty (appliqued BIG HEART).

I based the cover construction roughly on the cushion pattern from Amy Karol, bend-the-rules sewing, but I used a geometric pattern and quilted the face of the cushions and applique patterns on the reverse. It satisfied my urge to use my stash of rik rak
