The Block Cushion

A new cushion made from nine squares from the 200 Crochet Blocks by Jan Eaton book.

Top row from left: #13 Circle in a Square block, #9 Arcadia block, #47 Queen Anne's Lace block
Middle row from left: Christmas Rose block, #189 Willow block, #3 Square Target block
Bottom row from left: #18 Traditional Granny block, #165 Coffee and Cream block, #19 Lacy Cross block
Yarn: Patons UK Diploma Gold DK in 6187 White, 6237 Taupe, 6167 Navy and 6136 Denim (just under a ball of each)

backed with a traditional granny using three rows in each colour

and seamed together using a double crochet the whole way around in navy, then a double crochet in taupe and finally some simple shells in the taupe.

I must admit these blocks have sat in my crochet/knitting WIP drawer for far too long, but during last week's clean up I pulled them out and was determined to finish it off. I should have done it sooner, it really took no time to finish off.
