quilted cushion cover

Something for in between projects : a double sided quilted cushion cover. I made the hexie side a few weeks ago – see this post. When I was sorting out my sewing room, I found an extra log cabin block for a quilt I made earlier – Magenta and Golden Flowers.  All I needed was to add strips to the original log cabin un till I had a finished cushion cover size of 20″ x 20″.

I have used for both cushion cover sides bright Kaffe Fassett fabrics.

The log cabin strips are 1″ wide when finished; i.e. cutting is 1,5″. The center square is 2″ finished; i.e. cutting 2,5″.

Quilted in straight lines with the walking foot along all seams. I have used a diagonal stitch so that I could quilt this cushion cover in one go, without cutting off and burying any threads.

wip – chicken quilt

Today I have a few photos from my wip –  a Chicken Quilt Throw inspired by Emily from Quilty Love. The free chicken block pattern and tutorial is by Vicki from Sew Inspired. Thanks ladies for inspiration and sharing!

The block is easy and quick to piece, but nevertheless it makes a nice decoration quilt for the sofa.

magenta and golden flowers – free pdf quilt pattern

As promised in my last post – quilt with Kaffe Fassett fabrics – I have written the pattern for this quilt. It is a free pdf pattern that I would like to share with the large quilting community.

For the quilt I have combined two variations of a classical log cabin block – one is the courthouse steps block and the other block is a log cabin with stitch and flip squares around the flower panel.
