Hand piecing may be an old technique, but does not need to be old fashioned.
This 17in cushion is presented in a very modern style. The hexagons form "daisies", not Grandmother's Flower Gardens.
This design is great to use up your scraps. It is also very versatile, and will work well in any type of fabrics.
The contrast flange and binding add to the charecter of the cushion.
