I had purchased antique silk Kimono fabric, a very small portion , due to only having a very small portion of the silk, I decided to use it the following way.
I appliquéd the antique fabric over the cream silk fabric using a satin stitch then over the top of the satin stitch I stitched in gold metallic thread a decorative stitch, this give the work balance.

I used the remaining antique silk fabric for the cording around the cushion and then finished the back with the little bit left over....as I had paid so much for this antique Kimono fabric that I did not want to waste one little scrap of it.
