patchwork pentagon cushions

When Lou Orth created our quick and cheery Flower Shop cushions for issue 64, we fell in love at first sight. If you want to try English Paper Piecing pentagons like Lou, our free template will help you!

Is there anything more summery than a spot of English Paper Piecing with botanical prints in sunny shades? Lou’s cheery EPP cushions are the perfect excuse to do just this. Plus, as they’re not full quilts we get that lovely satisfaction of seeing them come together before our eyes in just a few stitching sessions.

Lou has used Patty Sloniger’s Flower Shop collection from Riley Blake Designs (available from EQS) for these designs. It’s topping our summer fabric lust list with its combination of leafy prints, geo blenders and rich tones.
