As I am heading for Prague this Thursday I didn’t want to start a bigger project – like quilting the levitating jewel box quilt or starting the twin levitating jewel box quilt. Instead I decided to work on some cushion covers for the lounge – you can never have enough. One is made with EPP hexies and the other is with hst.
My first EPP hexie project : using an idea of a modern hexie cushion cover on German Bernina site. The explanation is straight forward and I am very happy with the result.
At the moment I have just quilted the top, thinking about a design for the back. As I add the zipper closure to the bottom, I piece both sides of the cushion covers with a nice pattern.
The cushion cover size is 20″ x 20″ and I have used fabrics from my Kaffe Fassett stash box. I always like to work with them, the fabrics are so colourful, cheerful and happy.
The background fabric is Kona solid in eggshell, nearly the same colour as the backing. For the back of the cushion cover quilt sandwich I always use BOMULL unbleached fabric from IKEA, perfect price and quality balance.
The second cushion cover I have made was inspired by Saija from Pomada, pop over to see her beautiful quilts!
Once more I have used fabrics from my Kaffe Fassett stash box and the Kona solid in eggshell. Finished size is 18″ x 24″, each finished hst unit is 3″. I want to make the same design for the back side, maybe piece the hst’s a bit larger – like a test size for a possible quilt throw.
Both cushion covers are quilted using the walking foot in straight lines following the design. I have used Aurifil mako thread 40/2 in light sand, colour 2000.

This is all for this time, happy quilting!
