Sophie started working for Ellison in February 2015. Since then, she has enjoyed developing her style and skills within the company, and most of all, has enjoyed seeing her initial sketches and designs become products. She studied Art and Design at Central Saint Martins and has a degree in Textiles Design from Manchester University. She has always been strongly inspired by current trends, illustrations, surface patterns, natural elements and travel. When she isn't at work, she's still continuing her love of design by producing hand-printed textiles and papers while finding time to draw and experiment in her sketchbook.

  11. Right side facing, sew feature stitching in yellow thread ¼” from each square edge, forming a chequered pattern.
  12. Pin the pom pom trim around the edges of the finished quilted square, with the pom poms facing inwards. Sew in place.
  13. Position the two dark blue rectangles on top of the cushion front, right sides together so the squares and pom poms are on the inside and the hemmed edges are on top.
  14. Pin all around the edges, joining the quilted piece with the pom pom trim and the two dark blue cut outs.
  15. Sew around the edges, removing pins as you go.
