MAK­ING THE CUSH­ION

3

Fol­low steps 5–8 of the quilt in­struc­tions on page 77 to make one Block A. In steps

5–6 use the 2in scrap squares and the

2in x 3½in back­ground strips. Then use the

3½in x 24½in back­ground pieces in step 7.

4

Baste the cush­ion top cen­trally on one square of bat­ting. Quilt as de­sired. Ni­cole straight line quilted with an in­ter­sect­ing grid pat­tern.

5

Trim your back­ing fab­ric to 24½in x WOF. Then cut in half along the width, leav­ing the selvedges in­tact to form two pieces roughly 24½in x 22in. Leave the selvedges in place as an al­ter­na­tive to a hemmed edge.

6

Lay your back­ing pieces right side up, with the selvedges over­lap­ping by about

5in. Cen­tre the quilted cush­ion on top, right side down. Pin in place. Sew around edges.

7

Trim away ex­cess back­ing fab­ric, press and turn right side out.
