Well, it was a surprise for me. While sorting out through some fabrics in my old trunk, I found a very old UFO which I forgot about, a patchwork block. One of my first ever patchwork attempts, all hand pieced and already quilted (not very well) - and then forgotten for many years.
Luckily I found the same red check fabric as in the middle of the block still in my stash and used it for the border- and new cushion was born today!

    After what has happened I understand why you have watermarked your pictures. I keep wondering whether I should be doing it.

  10. That's such a lovely cushion Radka!
    Can you remember where that pattern came from as I think it would be a good pattern for me to start with.
    I could make a cushion to go on each of my granddaughter's beds - for their birthday's next year!
    The lovely little doll quilt in the previous post is tempting me too!
    Wishing you a happy week stitching.
