new cushion - japanese quilt blocks

made from a couple of curtain samples and an old cushion to fill ...i love to upcycle!

The weave block is from a book of Japanese quilt blocks and the strips end up about an inch wide.  Fiddly but very enjoyable.  the squares are 3inch squares- i was contemplating making a quilt of this size block - but I'm not sure...i have so many plans that i don't seem to start any of them.. still.. the thinking about it is just as enjoyable!
