Flowery cushion

I bought this fabric with the pattern already traced on a street market in Berlin ages ago and started sewing fairly soon after that. The floss is linen, even this mostly second hand shop loot.

Having developed my tastes since beginning this project I now find that the floss is rather chunky and I would use finer linen floss if I were to starting the project today.

Also adding to the chunkiness is the outlining everything with stem stitch, a choice then I think to mask what I found to be untidy edges of the satin stitch color blocks.
