Getting the block ready for sewing: I find it easier if I place my block piece on the cutting mat. This way I can carry all the block pieces together to where my sewing machine is. This ensures that I don’t make a mistake in sewing my block pieces correctly.
Ironing after sewing each piece together: This step is so crucial in ensuring a nice neat finish to your blocks.

This is the finished cushion front. I did find that after finishing the cushion cover is a bit short of 16″ x 16″ so guess what my creative hat will be put on and wait to see what solution I come up with. However, my friends work is still not complete, I still have the third bit to show you which then makes it into a lovely quilted patchwork cushion cover.
