Granny Rose CAL Grand Finale

In last weeks CAL Astri showed us how to complete the final round of the squares and showed us her method of joining the squares together here.  I loved her method of joining but unfortunately I had jumped the gun a bit and had started joining mine beforehand and had used the join as you go method, so here is one side of the cushion all joined up and ready for the next stage.

 


I had intended to keep the other side of the cushion plain but I wanted to try Astris joining method so I tried that with the reverse squares, then I found some stray roses and thought they would look good sewn onto the back too.  So now I have a two sided cushion I can swap over when I like.



In this weeks CAL we were shown how to join the two sides together, make a picot edging and add buttons.
So at last here is my beautiful finished cushion
Tadaaaaaaaaaaaa




 It's very pretty I think and it blends in with my décor beautifully, however I think this cushion looks lonely by itself so I'm going to make another one to keep it company :)

This is the reverse side

  2. It looks beautiful! I can't decide which side I prefer. If it were my cushion I think I'd be turning it around every 5 minutes!
