Blue and Green Cushion

This project has been underway for a couple of years, I picked it up again last month and attempted to finish the back which failed dismally as it turned out all wonky. I unravelled the back to start it again. Then I found a photo tutorial on how to turn granny squares into a cushion and followed that, and had a bit more success. I also found this page on cushion insert sizes to help work out the size of the insert. But I didn't use a proper insert for this cushion, I just recycled an old pillow with a new cover. I did a large granny square for the back, and had to make it a bit larger than I counted on, but it's turned out alright in the end. I just like the blue and green colours together, especially since when I was a little girl I was told blue and green should never be seen together without another colour in between! But I think they look good together, don't you?
blue and green should never be seen except with a colour in between!
the tiny granny squares took a long time to join together

one side of the cushion is made up of 64 tiny granny squares

the wonky back I unravelled
the back of the cushion ended up being one large granny square
