The first half of this year I was working on a secret project – a quilt for my Mum. She asked me to make her a new quilt for the couch in her kitchen. Her colour choice for the new quilt was the same blue/turquoise/green.
Matching to the new quilt, I made 5 cushion covers. All with the same color palette and all Kona solids. The background fabric is Kona solid in Ash – a wonderful hue between beige and grey. A very versatile neutral color.
Browsing my computer to upload photos of all five cushions covers, I couldn’t find them. Ohhh jeee, forgot to save them properly. This one I have pieced from all the leftover scraps. See this blog post.
The two cushion covers have geometrical patterns. One is a checkerboard block with 2,5″ cut squares, finished cushion size is 18″ square.
Quilted with the walking foot in diagonal lines, stitch length is 4,0 mm. I have added a turquoise binding as a decoration element.
The second cushion cover has a stripe pattern, using 1,5″ wide fabric pieces. The quilting is in diagonal, the stitching lines are 1″ apart. Cushion size is 16″ square.
For both cushion covers, I have used the same thread : Mettler Silk Finish Cotton 50, color 2792 in turquoise.
Here a few more shots :

Lesson learned : save photos correctly on the computer to find them later ! Happy quilting.
