Postcards from Paris finish!

**thanks to everyone for your lovely offers to help me earlier! I think my quilt has been saved :)**

I got this cushion finished up super quick thanks to Lynne's fabulous pattern and instructions - available here



The front squares are paper pieced and I did some straight line machine quilting as well as a little bit of hand quilting in the squares. I love the bright backing, which matches my kid's cushions!

I'm already comfy on the sofa with it and thankfully the rest of the family loves it too (the cat even got in on one of the pictures - can you spot her?!)!

This is the first item off my Finish-A-Long list and I'm going to go back to sewing determinedly now!
