This cushion will be the second of my Christmas gift makes for my three nieces (sisters aged 2, 9 and 15). First cushion blogged here.
Last weekend I got a chance to piece the cushion panels (front and back) together. I know my cutting layout my have inferred some kind of cross pattern was ahead, but the reality is in fact much more simple. I wanted to keep this cushion unfussy and to make the most of the larger scale prints that Amy Butlers Soul Blossoms are. This gift is for my fifteen year old niece who is very beautiful and very fashionable and I don't want her to find it old-fashioned or wonder what on earth her fuddy-duddy aunt was thinking giving her patchwork for a gift. So, I opted for this -
|Front of cushion|
|Back of cushion|
|Front and back - positive and negative of each other|
