I finished my hand quilting sample and decided to make a cushion.  My favourite technique for cushions is to make the back in two pieces with buttonholes in the overlap and then to simply bind it like a quilt.  So I have taken some photos of the process.

Step1. Stitch with 1/4" seam

Step 2: When you get to the corner, stop 1/4" before the corner and stitch into the corner at a 45 degree angle
Step 3: Take your work out from the machine and fold the binding up at a right angle
then fold it straight down again

and continue stitching.

and then your binding  has a neat mitered corner to hand stitch down on the back.
