There were lots of little pieces left from the making the quilt and it doesn't seem right throwing them away, so I asked the family what they would like me to do with them. (By the way, I don't throw fabric away, the scraps go to fill pet bedding) I offered to make a cushion and did tell them it would be crazy patchwork.
I've used simple cross hatch quilting and the ends have been bound using fabric from the same duvet cover used in the main quilt. The cushion pad was made from the duvet cover too. Every usable piece has been used, and I hope all the items will become family heirlooms and will help to create new memories out of the old.
