So after finishing my Scrappy Trip Around The World Quilt i found i had a fair few spare bits & pieces left over so it makes sense to make them up into cushion covers to go along with it.
Look at all these!
I used the same method as with the quilt, my cushion pads are 14×14″ so I needed to have 9 rows across by 9 rows down.
I decided as its precious fabric from my lovely jelly roll id only make it into the front & use some curtain fabric I’d had in my stash for ages for back
I wanted the same quilted finish as with the quilt so cut a backing from an up cycled charity shop bargain sheet & a square of wadding. Made up a sandwich of the 3 & pinned
This I quilts on the diagonal of each small square ending up with a nice textured panel
I used the curtain fabric & cut two pieces to over lap each other on the back envelope fashion, it’s important that these covers are easily washed as no doubt my dogs will claim them! Zips are a fuss to put in too…
I’m pleased with the result & have enough scraps too make another 3 covers.
