AS­SEM­BLING THE CUSH­ION

5

Pair two navy and back­ground 9½in squares to­gether, RST. Us­ing the same di­rec­tions as Block E (step 13 of the quilt) and Fig 4, cre­ate eight HSTs from this pair. Trim all HSTs to 4¼in. 6

As­sem­ble the cush­ion top as shown in Fig 1, sewing the units into rows, then sewing the rows to­gether.

7

Make a quilt sand­wich by plac­ing the cush­ion top over the bat­ting right side up. Baste and quilt as de­sired. Trim the ex­cess bat­ting and square up the cush­ion top.

8

Fold the two back­ing pieces in half, WST, so they mea­sure 10in x 15½in when folded. Press. Stitch along the pressed edges, 1/8in from the fold.

9

Place the two back­ing pieces on top of your cush­ion front, WST, lin­ing up the raw edges. The back pieces will over­lap in the mid­dle. Run a line of bast­ing stitches around all four edges.

10

Bind around the edge of the cush­ion as you would a quilt, and fill with a cush­ion in­sert to fin­ish.
