Designing & Making a Patchwork Headboard

I first decieded to learn how to upholster when I got a quote for the re-upholstery of my retro 2 seat sofa and armchairs, the price was out of my budget so I needed a plan B.  Plan B was to attend a city & gills upholstery class and learn how to do it myself and I did.

In order to obtain the city & gills certificate I had to work on various pieces on furniture, one was a headboard.  I needed a single headboard for my small spare bedroom which I was about to decorate.  Here are my designs, my work and the completed headboard.
