Cushion Cover

Working on possible combinations with my fabric strips.

Our new lounge was delivered the day after we finished repainting our main living areas. Some of you may remember
 I was thinking of making cushions covers from my quilt left-overs. Over the last few days I have been working towards that end. I sewed fabrics together, enough for two cushions fronts.

Basting the completed top to cotton quilt batting (middle layer) and back fabric.

Stippling in progress

Stippling from the reverse side. The green thread is the basting (temporary), holding the layers together.

My trusty Janome, over 25 years old, darning foot for stippling.

First cushion front, cut this morning.

A simple envelope closure in progress.

First cushion complete! I know it looks a little large (45cm/18") for the lounge but it's a very comfortable size. I plan to complete the second cover during the week, and buy an insert for it too.

I know I'm always curious about the backs of cushions, so here it is. I didn't have enough of the main print to cover the whole back so added another strip along the top and bottom. I like the variety it gives. The second cushion back will likely be a little different according the fabric I have left.

I'm pleased to see the quilt hasn't faded much, I like them together!

It's two years this month since I taught myself to quilt (although I have been sewing since I was a very young child).
My first quilt (a gift) is still one of my favourites, you can read the story here. Since then I have made several quilts, many of which I blogged about earlier this year.

Over the last few months photography and blogging have been my choice for "spare" time. I love having many interests, with passions to suit each and every situation and season.
