I’m so pleased that I can finally share my Neon Pop Indelible cushions with you! I found it very hard keeping quiet about these while I was making them, I was just itching to show them off. I did sneak a couple of photos onto Instagram in the early making stages but couldn’t do more. Now they are published I can show them to you – the disappearing nine patch even made the front cover of this month’s Love Patchwork and Quilting (edition 18).
I first saw Katarina Roccella’s Indelible fabric range towards the end of the summer and it really jumped out at me. I know it did for many other people too. I don’t tend to fall in love with a whole line, and it often takes me a while to ‘warm’ to fabrics, so it was quite unusual for me to have such a strong reaction.
I paired the prints with some coordinating linen to bring out some of the vibrant colours – I would have loved to have had a mustard linen too but couldn’t find one I liked. My initial plan had been to use shot cotton instead but the colours weren’t right and I’m happy with the decision to go for linen.
I can’t wait to have them back home and in our sitting room. I don’t plan on giving these away!
This month’s edition of Love Patchwork and Quilting has some very inspiring projects – it is well worth a look if you don’t know it.

Both designs allow the fabric to sing. The vibrant linen accentuates the glorious colours in the prints
