This year was a year of refurbishing and renovations at our house. We have bought some new furniture pieces, got new upholstery fabric for the sofa and painted the rooms in bright hues. And it was also time to change the cushion covers in all rooms. These are for the spare bedroom.
I have made two cushion covers – both sides have a block pattern and are quilted. The pattern is a classical granny square block, only the layout direction is different.
The cushion cover below has 3″ squares finished size, i.e. square cutting size is 3 1/2″. I have quilted this cushion cover on the left and right from each seam in straight lines with the walking foot.
The same block but different size of the squares – this time the finished squares are 2 1/2″, i.e. square cutting size is 3″. I have quilted this cushion cover using the walking foot with a wavy pattern in horizontal and vertical lines.
The other two cushion covers have the granny square block set in a vertical/horizontal layout. The finished square size is 2″, i.e. cutting square size is 2 1/2″. I have quilted both with the walking foot in straight lines on the diagonal.
Quilting in detail :
I have added the zipper closure on the bottom of the cushion covers.
The cushion covers are 20″ x 20″ – a standard cushion inlet size.
Solids are from Kona Cotton collection, background fabric is magenta from the Linen Texture collection by Makower UK.
Quilting thread is Gütermann Sulky Cotton 30 in different colours.
