Good Morning. How was your weekend? Mine was fantastic partly because I finished my Granny Cushion on Saturday evening. And it turned out so beautiful.......I am quite proud of it really....it is exactly as I envisioned it in my creative mind when I began....I am so pleased with it.
before the pattern for the squares came from page 48 of this book. I made each square with a different color combination and tried to space out the colors so that the same ones were not right beside each other on the front of the cushion. Sixteen squares were made in total.
this post I talked about my ideas for making the back of the cushion and left you with my plan to do a striped back. Well, I did do that but not without a few less than stellar attempts: a totally blue back that was just plain boring, and a back that was mainly blue with three evenly spaced yellow stripes that reminded me too much of a college sweater.
In the end I went with a totally random stripe pattern and I love it. It allowed me to include so many more colors and it matches the homespun nature of the granny front.
