Lets get sewing…
Take your 9 chosen squares, and sew together using ¼” seam allowance in rows of three.
Join the three rows together, press seams open.
Take your two shorter white strips and sew top and bottom of the 9 square block, press seams open.
Sew the remaining two white strips to the remaining two sides, press seams open.
Take the backing pieces, fold and press one long edge over twice, and top stitch to hold in place, repeat on the second backing piece.
Sew your cushion with right sides together, making sure to lay the bigger backing piece down onto the right side of the cushion front piece, with raw edges all on the outer edge.
Pin and sew using ½” seam allowance. Snip corners
Turn right side out and press, add cushion pad.
