Patriotic Patchwork – Union Jack Cushion cover Pattern

This was my first quick patchwork cushion made up using scraps of material. ¬†I admit I hadn’t thought out the design too well so I took time to refine it and made a few more in different colours and styles. ¬†Strangely it was the men in the family who requested these as Christmas gifts.

Then I made a pair in black white shades to match my room


Block Layout – create four

All four 7 inch blocks are joined with four inch red strips to create Union jack cushion front


Dutiful paper crafts

As you can probably guess, I have not done much paper crafting lately.
My attention has been turned back to my older craft loves, sewing and Knitting. I will update on some of my newer creations soon. That’s just because I have reset my remote access to the blog! – love technology – its a pity I am not that good at it!
Anyway, this is a birthday card for my Dad. I really struggled with my creativity for this one. Eventually I just built this from a few basic elements.
