I am amazed that I found these two cushions covers so easy .... but I have found the reason.
I've used the bright fabric I bought for a throw for the conservatory settee. Not everyone's colour choice but they were meant to be bright for our patio chairs.
The top one is made using squares and rectangles and the other is a log cabin pattern.
I choose these patterns to practice my cutting out and accurate stitching and it has certainly paid off, as I am a lot more confident in matching up corners and seams!
This was all from one session at a quilting and patchwork class, which I thoroughly enjoyed and intend to go to each week once we move here permanently.
It less than a ten minute drive from my home and she sells fabric and wools, a verity Aladins cave!
I think I have caught the patchwork bug and now feel confident enough to attempt a bed size quilt!
