New cushion front

I was lucky to recieve a layer cake of the Valori Wells Cocoon collection of fabrics for Christmas. I decided to make some new cushion covers for our sofa with them.
I haven't got very far yet but here's the first completed front.


Each block is a paper pieced and I FMQ a different design on each inner block and the outer triangles and left the inner triangles unquilted which gives some puffiness.

I bought an invisible zipper foot for my machine a while ago which I haven't tried yet and I'm intending on using it to insert an invisible zip on the reverse. I just need to buy the zip.....which is invisible so it may be difficult.
I've succumbed to joining instagram and would love some followers if anyone fancies joining me.
