What materials did you use? Cotton fabrics from my stash

What are you most proud of? I am very happy with how they turned out and how quickly I got them done. I would like to put a covered button in the centre of the X cushion but decided against it as little Lily-Kate could decide it looks good to eat!!!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Try doing the Quilt as you go... it is so easy and quick. Like the disappearing 9patch, the string block has so many variations and it was fun trying to mix and match the fabrics. However, I found that it was quite difficult to be point perfect with these blocks as I was working with the three layers. Some of my points are a bit off but I am still happy with my little cushions:)

How clever, you have sewn the backs with pizazz, they're beautiful. You've inspired me, may I copy your backs?

Thanks for the lovely comment and of course you may copy the backs and look forward to seeing some of yours:) It is a much simpler and quicker method than zips and button holes!
