Finished - one cockatoo cushion. This is going to be a green loving, bird mad, nephew's birthday gift.
I decided to use batik, for the background, because it gave the impression of a bird looking out of leafy branches and a slightly tropical feel. A strip of green Kona cotton breaks it up and I have bound it in the same fabric. Quilting is just four straight lines each side of the inset green strips The backing is the batik too and it has a concealed zip. I am really pleased with how this has turned out, hopefully my nephew loves it too.
