That's a precut package of 42 x 10 inch squares of fabric. The quit top used 30 of the 42 squares and 12 of these 10 inch squares needed to be trimmed to 9 1/2 inches, so I had a nice little pile of 1/2" strips. Couldn't throw them away now could I! . So here is what I came up with. I call it "Sticky Nine-Patch" lol A 14" toss cushion.
There are still 12 squares left so I plan on making a giant pinwheel quilt from those.
I raw-edge appliqued the "sticks" on to leftover Kona Snow squares from the same project. Sewed them into a nine-patch configuration and free motion quilted the wavy lines. I didn't have a cushion form to fit perfectly, so I remembered that my quild mate, Dominique, had addressed this problem by creating a flange. Great idea! Problem solved.
|A look at the back. I always like to use a selvedge on the back of cushions that I make. The Perfect Place!|
Since I mentioned selvedges, check out the giveaway on It's Sew Time facebook page today. The prize is an amazing project book with lots of ideas on how to use up all the selvedges you have been saving. I know I have a ton!
