Hot off the machine: Pink Snowman Cushion !!

Hip Hip Hooray!!!! I was playing around yesterday with the Ohio Star block and a method of piecing that had me intriqued. The bit I played with will be made into something or other. I had dragged out these three fabric colours, and knew they would work with the hot-pink fabric of my snowman finish from a few days ago. (where on earth i've put the other snowman finishes...oh well-somewhere safe for now) Anyway... I pieced the patchwork and knew I wanted to put the stitching off-center - and played with the fabric that was left over. So here is the front of the cushion.
I'm a bit thingy about wasting one whole piece of fabric for
a back of a cushion, so decided to have a play at another technique for the back. A bit of crazy patchwork, but I'm not that thrilled with it. It does fill out the back of the cushion quite well, and who will be looking at the back all the time with the stunning stitching on the front anyway??? The cushion is only held together with two pink buttons, the extra 3 white ones are for decoration. Now to move onto another quick project, while the sewing machine is on!!

(and as this is post number 198 and I have now 97 followers - perhaps I'd better scout around for a 200/100 giveaway????? - stay tuned!)
