Using leftover Spectrum QAL fabric to make a sensational cushion! Part 1

Welcome back to another week of Spectrum QAL 2020 posts! If you thought we were done using the twelve QAL blocks made with The Little Girl in the Blue Armchair collection by Anthology Fabrics… think again. You’ll love what I’ve prepared! If you enjoyed making the twelve blocks as much as I did, then you’ll jump into making another set of blocks, just on a much smaller scale.

I decided to make the blocks in a 6″ finished size so I can have a sensational decorative cushion to add on my bed – something that will play off the bed runner. I picked my favorite seven blocks out of the twelve to make my unique design. I’ll give you the cutting instructions for all twelve blocks so you can choose whichever ones you prefer, along with the instructions to assemble them together to make this sensation decorative cushion.

I picked my favorite seven blocks from the Spectrum QAL bed runner to make a matching decorative cushion.
