Quilted Cushion

Finished this cushion, which I've been working on over the last week. It is approx 45cm square.

The patchwork is a traditional "carpenter's wheel" block. I cut and pieced it using a method demonstrated by Jenny Bowker in the workshop I did with her last month. This is what the sets of eight triangles were for.

I quilted the front of the cushion cover using Elizabeth Hartman's Dogwood all-over design.

The back fastens with buttons. I couldn't find a cushion insert to buy, so made my own from some scrap fabric and fibrefill. That meant I didn't have to spend any money to make this, it was all from stash.
