Off Set HST Quilted Cushion

What are you most proud of? That I actually stuck at it as there was an awful lot of little squares to sew together! Also, my room is now complete, no more cushions needed, well for this room... I am now starting to make some for my Sitting Room! What advice would you give someone starting this project? Make the squares bigger! I cut mine at 3.5" which made 2" HST blocks which meant alot of sewing. I used the HST method of sewing two 3.5" contrasting squares together then cutting them diagonally twice making 4 HST little squares. Be sure to lay it out and sew row by row as it is tricky keeping the pattern in order.
