PIEC­ING THE BLOCKS

8 Use the eight in one method, as in steps 9–10 of the quilt in­struc­tions to make a to­tal of four Fab­ric B/E HSTs and eight Fab­ric C/E HSTs.

9 Make a cor­ner block, sewing one 4½in Fab­ric E square and one 4½in Fab­ric B/E HST to­gether. Then sew a Fab­ric E 8½in x 4½in rec­tan­gle to one long edge. Make four of these cor­ner units, re­fer­ring to Fig 1 for place­ment of the squares in each unit.

10

Make a cen­tre block with two Fab­ric C/E HSTs, one Fab­ric D 4½in square and one Fab­ric E 4½in square. Sew to­gether as a four-patch (Fig 2).

AS­SEM­BLING THE PIL­LOW TOP

11

Lay the blocks out with one Fab­ric A 8½in square, re­fer­ring to the Lay­out Di­a­gram. Join the blocks into rows, then join the rows to­gether to com­plete the cush­ion top.

QUILT­ING AND FIN­ISH­ING

12

Make a quilt sand­wich by plac­ing the lin­ing square right side down, the bat­ting on top, then place the cush­ion top cen­trally and right side up. Baste the lay­ers to­gether us­ing your pre­ferred method.

13

Quilt as de­sired. Shan­non quilted a straight line de­sign, echo­ing the piec­ing. Trim off the ex­cess bat­ting and back­ing fab­ric and square up the cush­ion top.

14

On each of your Fab­ric G rec­tan­gles, fold one long edge un­der by ½in and press. Fold again by ½in, en­clos­ing the raw edge, and press. Top­stitch 1/8in away from the loose folded edges.

15

Place the two back pieces on the wrong side of your cush­ion front, right sides to­gether, lin­ing up the raw edges. The hemmed edges of the back pieces will over­lap. Pin and baste around the edges, us­ing a ¼in seam al­lowance.

16

Join the bind­ing strips to­gether end-to-end, us­ing di­ag­o­nal seams. Press the seams open, fold the strip in half length­ways, wrong sides to­gether, and press. At­tach the bind­ing as you would when bind­ing a quilt to fin­ish.
