a gift for my friend Irena

My friend Irena comes twice a year to Spain to spend some quality time at her house. Because of the pandemic, she was not able to come for two years. We were so happy to meet in August. She is born in September and this year we could celebrate her birthday together. Instead of buying something, I made for her three matching cushion covers.

A few years ago, I made for Irena a table runner for her house. I thought it would be nice idea, to match the table runner with cushion covers. The three cushion covers have a distinct pattern, but still reflect the same style. All are 18″ x18″.

There is a fussy cut flower in the center – same as the table runner. The solid backing fabric is Spectrum in Antique White by Makower.

For the cushion backing I have used a matching fabric with a small flower pattern, this I had on my stock. The covers have a zipper closure on the bottom.

All three cushion covers have the same quilting design. On the front diagonal lines 1″ apart, the diagonal lines on the back are 2″ apart. Both, front and back of the cushion covers are with a sandwich with wadding and muslin.
