I made this stripy patched square for the backing but the mister, who seems to know a lot more about this cushion making caper than he lets on, thought it should be a cover of it's own. And I was happy that the log cabin triangle scraps would be out there, not hiding 'round the back.
And here's how the triangles turned out.
I decided to use white piping to bring out the centre circle (thanks owed to this very easy-to-follow tutorial on design*sponge). Note to self - next time allow for half inch rather than quarter inch seams all the way around - much less fiddly, particularly with the myriad of overlapping log cabin seams.
The backs were two pieces of contrasting Gold Folks' material and a zipper closure.
Those colours are just fantastic.
I'm so glad I love the way they've turned out as they took a looooong time to put together.
Next up, a baby quilt using this great tutorial over at Red Pepper Quilts.
And the fabrics? Well, I'm thinking about these:
All Star, by My Minds Eye. Sweet designs for a very dear little boy who'll be showing up in our extended family soon.
