An Improv Chicopee Cushion

I've had an urge to do something improv for a while - so after finishing Groove (which was pretty heavy on the concentration side of things) and being a bit sick of paper piecing my tippecanoe cusion, I decided to make something new but small. I had my pile of Chicopee scraps left over from the tippecanoe cushion, so I decided to use those with some Melody Miller ladies and put together a QAYG cushion.


The insert is 14" x 21" - and the cover is just shy of that, so it's a really plump cushion. The back is some more Melody Miller - this teapot print is one of my absolute favorites of hers.


I made the patchwork panel in sections, and then just sewed them together batting and all. I was a bit concerned it would be a bit bulky along the seams, but they sit really flat.




Now I just need to finish making the other one...
