i finished another cushion last night, for our newly built bench in the kitchen  Grin
its a confetti quilt pattern. although its simple in its theory the actual making holds some difficulties.
as you can see in the pictures i had to add a small panel of the neutral fabric to get back my square.
i should have trimmed my panels before joining them.
if you want to try this out, follow these steps:
1. gather small scraps and some neutral/ solid fabric
2. cut long strips from neutral/ solid fabric
3. sew the scraps onto the strips in a row
4. cut each section
5. repeat step until you have 3 sides of the scraps framed with neutral/ solid fabric
6. arrange in rows and sew togehter
7. quilt if you like and finish to your liking
8. be happy that you made a confetti quilt

c&c appreciated!

This pillow is gorgeous.  I love the quilt pattern.   As for using up all those small piece of fabric that I just can't seem to let go of; so wonderful.   I am looking forward to making this pattern, but hopefully into a purse instead of a pillow.

I love how this looks.  I pretty much save anything bigger than an inch, so this would be a great way to use them.  Hey, those scraps cost just as much per yard as the bigger pieces.
