Union Flag Cushion

I made this for my brother a couple of years ago at his request.  As, at the time I made this, I had no idea about using the sewing machine to piece patchwork it was made totally by hand.  It's not totally clear from the photo but the cream fabric was cord, the red velvet and the blue some fine, blue, shiny stuff that frayed like crazy I had to be stuck on fusible interfacing so I could sew it up.

I enjoyed making this cushion, I would like to get around to making another one using the sewing machine some time, or maybe create a quilt to go with (minus the sparkly blue fabric).


That would have taken quite a while, sewing by hand, Vicki. Looks great!!! I don't mind the sparkly blue...
