This patchwork cushion is made using the traditional hand sewing technique of English paper-piecing, but with a twist! Thanks to the temporary glue pen, it is now easier to baste curved edges which are then sewn together using a flat back stitch. So if you have had your fill of hexies and diamonds, why not give curves a try, you will be addicted in no time!
