My friend Alice asked me a few weeks ago, if I could make here a quilted cushion cover for her favorite armchair at home. She liked the quilted cushion covers I have made for our lounge sofa. So the cushion design was a straightforward decision.
I have opted to use Kona solids in Dove and Pewter for the basic hourglass blocks. Alice also wanted some bright colors added to the neutral shades. For this I have used fabric from my stock in a burgundy, fuchsia, pink, orange and yellow shades.
Alice can use the cushion cover can on both sides. One side has only hourglass blocks – finished size of a unit is 3″ square. The other side has the smaller hourglass blocks – finished size is 2,5″ square. To this I have added a 0,5” wide border in burgundy, before finishing the cushion cover with the light grey fabric.
Quilted with my new favourite thread from Amman Mettler Silk Finish in cotton 40, color 0331. I have used the walking foot and stitch length 4,0 for straight quilting in diagonal. The meeting point of both sides.
I have added a zipper to the bottom of the cushion cover.
Cushion cover size : 15″ x 15″

Happy quilting, enjoy life and stay safe!
