Fabric Scrap Cushions

Finished some cushions this weekend! A wet weekend gave me bonus sewing time. I had a lot of scraps leftover from Caitlin's quilt and had always intended to make some cushions to match her quilt. I also had lots of ideas leftover that didn't quite make it to the quilt that I wanted to try out. In the large cushion I used up lots of really tiny scraps to make up the centres of the log cabins. The idea for the middle sized cushion came when I had leftover strips of fabrics from the fabric wreath I made Caitlin.
The main fabric for the backs was leftover from the back of Caitlins quilt and I stripped pieced all the spotty fabrics together for added interest. The coloured buttons were also a great find in the scrapbooking section of a bargain shop. They came in a packet of 20 in all different sizes and some are really cute with flowers or butterflies on them.
