I don't make cushions as a general rule- they're small...and fiddly...and, well, not very satisfying. I make quilts, and they're mostly biggish ones. But for my city and guilds assessment, I made this cushion. The photos don't show up in the order I thought they would (I never can seem to get that right) but I'm sure you can follow them. I used plain white homespun and some of my hand dyed fabrics.
I had to show where I had tried out various different things for the quilting and applique, which slows down the process considerably. Usually I decide on something then just go ahead and do it. If it doesn't work, I say 'oops' and then unpick it or, more likely, tell myself that's what I wanted to do in the first place! I did find it useful for this project though, as I changed my mind about a couple of things after doing the samples.
On the whole, I'm pleased with my cushion. I hope you like it too.
