Patchwork Cushion Day 4

I sat and looked at it for a while.  It goes very nicely with Maisy Cat on her cushion.

And then I decided what to do.

I didn't want to have cut hexagons on the edge. It looks fine on other works but I didn't fancy it for this.  So I have started to do more patchwork hexagons on the back by adding them as I go. If you look at the right and left side I hope you can see that I have added hexagons and sewed them right side together along the edges.  The left side I have gone a bit further.  So at the end I will have to turn it inside out and it will all work out. Maybe!

There will be the what is the name of a top angle?... of the hexagons but it will be ok as I am going to make my own cushion pad which will just be square.


Ok, so I didn't explain myself very well, did I?

Here are some more photos which I hope will help and if they don't then you will just have to trust me.

 And to help even more here is a link to a blog where the person explains it much better.

She is making a quilt and I am making a stuffable cushion so obviously I need mine open.

Hope that helps.

I don't blame you, Heather.

I have added a bit of explanation which I hope helps.

LOL now I get it. I like the idea of knitting hexies and making a cushion cover in the same way, but more for the "to do" list!!
