Step 3: Quilt the cushion front
Pin your layers securely together so that the layers do not shift while you quilt them.
If you have a walking foot for your sewing machine fit it now and choose a suitable thread for your quilting. First I used black thread and quilted "in the ditch" around the eyes and mouth and around the border. Then changed to my darning foot, dropped the feed dogs, and did a square spiral in the eyes and the mouth of the the creeper. Finally, keeping the darning foot fitted, I changed to the variegated green thread, then meander quilted across the mid and light green areas and did a square meander in the black borders
After quilting trim your batting & muslin backing so the edges are even with the edges of the cushion front.
