ASSEMBLING THE FIRST CUSHION SQUARE:

Position the four rectangle panels as shown in the photo;
position the octagon square in the center – this is to determine how many more
rounds will be needed to complete the octagon square
Note: this is to accommodate the difference in yarn and tension

Repeat the REPEAT ROUND until the Octagon Square fits snugly into the space created by the four panels

I only needed one REPEAT ROUND to fit my square.

SEWING THE PANELS AND SQUARE TOGETHER:
I used the SLIP STITCH method to join my square to the four panels – this method is not for everyone – use whatever method you are comfortable with.

I worked anti-clockwise to sew everything together 🙂

Weave in all ends – square does need some blocking.
My square size before blocking – 14 inch x 14 inch
