Cathedral Window pincushion

So I thought making something small would be a good way to practice rotary cutting. I’ve decided to make a pincushion from 2 cathedral window squares which I think look really pretty. I had a book with a good tutorial but unfortunately that book was from the library and I returned it last week. DOH!

I can’t find any pincushion tutorials online, but I found this tutorial for making a cathedral window quilt. I was still quite confused though (no reflection on the tutorial which is ace – I found the book tutorial confusing as well). So I decided to make a paper version. It’s amazing how much clearer everything is when you actually have something in front of you. Here’s my paper cathedral window:
