squares

I've been lacking in having a project on the go since Christmas, so when I remembered these lovely squares I decided it was time to use them. (The new fabric hasn't worked out what it wants to be yet). A friend gave them to me at least a year ago, and they they were too gorgeous to cut up. I have two strips each with 41 squares, they are fabric samples but are going to end up as a cushion cover - that's the plan anyway! So far I have worked out my design, made myself cut them into lengths, and pinned it all together. The second two photos are rubbish as I had to take them in the evening before I went onto the next stage, but the top one gives a good indication of the beauiful colours. Now I plan to handstitch the strips together, but I haven't decided yet whether this will be the front for a squarish cushion or both sides of a smaller rectangle. It's nice to have a project that evolves as it goes along! : )
