First Quilted Cushion

I made this cushion on the same course as the Art Nouveau Wall Hanging, it has just taken me ages to write about it! I really loved the oriental inspired fabric and could not wait to use it. I feel it was to good effect.

So on the Beginners Patchwork Course I learnt 4 Piecing techniques:

American Piecing

English Piecing

Machine Piecing

Foundation Piecing

I can no longer tell which area is which! I can say I did not like the English Piecing or Foundation Piecing. However I will continue with the Machine Piecing.

As for the actual quilting I took to Free Machine Quilting like a duck to water. I love it. I just cannot sew in a straight line so this is perfect. If you look closely you will see my in the ditch quilting is terrible!
