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