Patchwork Cushion

Isn't it interesting how a project can be driven by materials on hand? I have been following Posie's blog was dying to try her technique for patchwork cushions. I crocheted one of the cushions for the adirondack chairs out back and decided that patchwork was what I wanted for the other one. In my mind, I pictured something very similar to Posy's. But when I went through my stash and scraps, this is what I came up with. Now, don't get me wrong - it turned out beautifully (Posie's technique makes for the slickest piecework ever). But . . . it isn't right for the look I am striving for out back. I guess there is nothing for it, but to try again!

Here is a view of Abbaye de Hautecombe on Lac du Bourget. It is a beautiful spot on a lovely lake.
