I chose the pattern 'Chelsea Log Cabin' - I know it's not French - I just liked it. I made 16 individual blocks. These 8 had dark starting squares.
I decided to make the cushion back using these fabrics too. I just joined squares for this, and buttons in the closure.
Here is the finished cushion front. I am very happy with it and hope my friend who will be receiving it for xmas will like it too. As she is a French teacher I thought the fabrics would be great for her.
