My latest creation .. inverted star cushions!
I love the way the cushions echo each other. I decided to stay with bright, bold colours for this to accentuate the pattern.
The overall mini quilt block size is 12″, with a 2″ border to create a 16″ cushion. The blocks to create the small centre star were as small as 1.5″. I had to take great care not to pull the blocks out of form whilst pressing, as I find it’s really easy to pull these blocks out of form when they’re so small.
The back is a black and white floral fabric, and a black block to keep the back clean. I used one of the feature stitches on the black block for my top stitch, which looks like little leaves. I love this stitch – it’s so dainty, and it perfectly reflects the floral fabric that I used. The backs of both cushions are the same.
I just decided to stitch these as I love the double star / inverted look that I get from both cushions.
Enjoy your crafting adventures!
